Doing Work Among Deer Seasons…

Filed under: Interior — Duane Diefenbach @ 9:11 pm

Thanksgiving is  a tough time to get work done on the house because of all the deer seasons. We visited my sister in Kentucky where Molly shot a doe. Then immediately upon our return we headed to Dauphin County, PA to hunt the opening day. Molly saw a nice 8-10 pt but didn’t get a shot. I have yet to see a deer this season. Anyway, I have managed to fit the cherry panel that completes the broom closet and duct chase in the kitchen. I don’t have a very recent photo of the pre-existing condition except way back here – http://setterrunfarm.com/blog/?p=774 – but the panel with the light switches has been exposed wiring and framing since almost the beginning.

Here’s the result: (notice the nearby dogs and dog toys lying about)

I am also trying to finish the window seat in Molly’s room. This weekend I finished the bookcase shelves and the frame around the bookcase. All (!) that is left is to make 2 drawers and 2 doors below the bench and bookcase. Please note the professional model in her Snow Ball dress (not the short one covered in hair – that’s Hazen). Hopefully the upholsterer will finish the bench cushion so that the space will be “use-able” sooner than later.
