Had a productive past few days and got all the walls cut out and erected. Here are a few pics of the progress.
Cut some shallow dadoes to locate the walls into their locations
The ceiling for the first floor had to exactly match the floor so this was done before erecting the walls using a flush trim bit in the router and the floor as the pattern.
Now that the ceiling is done the walls go up.
For these next 3 shots I layed the ceiling in place. It gave this house a real look.
This pic is from the right-front corner looking on to the front porch.
Standing in the kitchen looking into the dining room.
Standing in living room looking towards front door. Dining room is through the door on the right.
A little perspective to the size of this thing. (and yours truly)
Next phase is fabricating the first flight of stairs, kitchen cabinets, wainscoting, and living room fireplace, internal painting, doing all the door and window trim, and installing the flooring.
See you then…....
