We have 4 weeks until Easter week activities consume both our evening and weekend activities.
Since it seems to be too early in the season to count on working on projects outside I’m going to get busy on our master closet.
First item of business is to calculate how much lumber the project will take and have it delivered to the house.
My preliminary estimate is 10 sheets of plywood so we’ll need a spot inside to store the lumber.
Then we’ll need to cut the lumber (outside) and bring it back into the closet space to assemble it. Our plan is to use pocket screws to hold everything together.
I was all jazzed about getting started right after we finished the shelves in the conservatory bathroom. Now I’m doubting our ability to pull this off.
My project list:
- Make a supply list.
- Order supplies.
- Cut lumber according to plans.
- Assemble in closet.
- Paint structures.
- Attach to wall.
- Add hanging poles, hooks, and bins.
- Trim the closet door and window.
- Install closet light.
- Sort clothes and hang them in closet.
I’ve been waiting a long time for a proper closet. I hope we can pull it together in 4 weeks.
Would you paint the lumber before or after it’s put together?
