oh wow, these are really nice work!
curious – 2nd picture with the moldings and frame trims – are those installed directly onto the drywall? or is there a backer wood that is painted the same color of the wall which the trim is glued/nailed to?

WOW! Awesome job. Very nice detail. How long have you been on this particular job?

Thank you for the comments.
The shadow box type frames on the walls are attached directly to the sheetrock with brads and glue. Takes a little time to get all the boxes evenly spaced, centered, and looking the same size on all the walls in the room but it worth it. Those boxes where installed in the formal living, formal, dining and hallway area toward the kitchen/family room. Project took two days to cut and install the painting took longer to get the cut in or lines sharp. I hate and I mean hate when a painter just slaps on the paint and doent care how it looks so i do most of my painting as well (part of the package normally).
The stain grade room (study) took a little over a week to install. Every piece was milled in my shop and fitted on site. The customer was very happy with the details and extra profiles of molding used to make the room stand out and look more expensive that it actually was. Plus it added so much more detail and depth to the room.
The octagone T&G ceiling was made out of Cypress and had to be installed off a lift. It was 32 feet off the floor and I HATE heights. Of coarse it was not a tru octagone and none of the sides where the same so just about every piece had a different angle and lenght. It was worth it in the end and 100’s of people look at it every day since it was installed in a gym at a country club.
The other item I call it the “wagon wheel” was made out of Cedar I believe and was 24’ off the floor and was assembled off scaffolding. Their is a very heavy and very large colonial type light hanging from it now but I do not have any photos of it. It was very disapointed that the client decided to paint it after I spent a lot of time getting the joints good and tight when the painter just caulked the heck out of everything and literally slapped some paint on it. I think it would have look a LOT better natural or if it was stained. Bottem line is the customer was happy.
Thank you for your comments and have a great day!

Most people don’t realize the time, & patience it take to finish off a house.
The finishing carpenter is the mainstay of a beautiful home.
