Week 5 was canceled to honor those that need to be heard during this horrible time in our country. These are challenging times for everyone and it seems to be just getting harder. This week starts to be the week in the process where you realize all the things you haven’t done yet and that the finish line is coming.
I can’t believe I am even typing that that considering I’ve technically been working on this room since February. However, as we all know with everything going on in the world, supplies are on backorder, out of stock, and shipping times are extended by weeks so I’m thankful for the extra time.
This week I have been working on the box beams for the ceiling. I knew I was going to need a lot of wood, so I ordered online at Lowe’s for curbside pick up. They canceled my order twice without reason. But it actually ended up being a good thing.
I originally planned on using 1×6’s and cutting them down to 4.5″ wide. However, it was going to be a lot of work and a lot of waste. So after some more planning and more math, I decided to use 1×4’s instead. I also wanted to have mitered edges for a super clean look, but again that would be a lot of work, and a lot of time I don’t have right now. So instead I will do basic box beams. I will share a full tutorial when I finish them!
