Sharing our wooden yurt building experience and more.
Here is what Corbin has been doing for months now…cutting and cutting and cutting…and cutting…. Now I believe the only thing left to cut is the rest of the trim because the floor is finally done! 🙂 It will be sanded and stained next week.
Our kitchen cabinets are in the works by cabinet maker Bill Henry. Here they are minus the doors. Our painter, Matt Helguson, will be painting them white, except for the inner shelves (not pictured), top and bottom, which will be the Rubio stain we’ve been using for the trim and floor. The cabinet on top of the stack is laying flat. If it was standing up, the little drawer you see there would be on the top and then a very thin cabinet for things like cookie sheets, cutting boards etc on the bottom. You can see where it is cut out for our apron front sink in the bottom one.
The woman at the sink store told me about this company http://www.chicagofaucet.com that makes heavy duty, well made faucets. They are made in the US. They deal mostly with commercial businesses but have been around since 1901 and also have residential faucets. You can buy each part individually and they all are compatible so that means you can build your own faucet to your specifications. I found out that an online business called http://www.chicagofaucetshoppe.com had bought out all their discontinued parts and so when I went to find some old fashioned things like the porcelain handles I realized that I could get them there and not on the other site. It turns out, every part was cheaper on this website and they have things that the original company doesn’t since they discontinued things and they are now on this site instead. I would go to the Chicago Faucet site first and use their “build a faucet” tab to find out the part number of things they did have, then go over to the other site and put it in my “cart”.
Here is the back of our house which got stained today with Sikkens.
