I recently bought my first home and could not wait to get started on the remodeling. I have been woodworking for around 10 years and just started with construction. I picked the Den because it was going to be the least used room and would be a gateway to the kitchen. I tore down the panneled walls and put up drywall and new insullation. I tore down the cieling and put in beadboard with my own design of crown modling. I knocked the fireplace down and built a new one to the ceiling with new framing, cement board and veneer stone.
The mantel is a slab of Cherry from Thomas Edison’s phonograph factory that was originally one of the floor joists. I am waiting for the weather to get nice again to put in a new sliding door and wood floors.
