SF Cribs: The places behind the clothes - Page 119

post #1771 of 1906

Never thought about that. We used OSB under our hardwood downstairs. When we were renovating condos we just used an insulating base layer under a laminate.

Awesome stuff, Pierce.

I was talking about the walls, I would not use mdf or z-clips on the floors....

I've seen hardwood plywood used for floors, but durability would have a lot to do with the finish. I'm doing a stairwell at the moment and using hardwood plywood for the landing. I plan to cap the edge leading down the stairs in solid wood.

Anyways, going about my stairwell renovation.

I am switching to Benjamin Moore for any of the main floor or second floor living areas.

- Using poplar for the moldings and I've designed my own handrail to be attached with standoffs rather than metal hardware. It will be 8/4 walnut, x 4" tall with a taper cut into the sides from about 1/4 of the way down. Standoff will be 1-1/2" walnut dowels.

Post pics as it goes.

 

Stairwells are such a pain in the ass. I hope it goes well.

Thank you, will do.

This one has not proven to be too much of bear, aside from the fact that I think it was the 3rd rate team that originally did the drywall.

I am not sure if this is the right thread but here it goes: I have 5 meters long corridor in my apartment it is 1.5m x 5m and I need ideas on what the hell to do with it , other than a gallery.
I can have custom furniture built for it but I need an inspirational ideas. The corridor connects the entrance room to the main-room

That's not very wide so not sure what kind of furniture you could put in other than a narrow bookcase. What could make it interesting is custom lighting. 

 

Do you have a picture?

It is not a bad idea, but I have a cellar in the basement that is climate controlled.
I was considering long console (custom made?), but need vision for it or photos. I can always put some antique junk on top of console and store shoes or clothing in it. That is all I have for ideas right now.
Custom lighting sounds interesting as well. I was considering museum spot lights for pictures plus one overhead lighting fixture.

I have a console in a similar situation to what you mentioned that I made from 6/4 character grade walnut in a simple configuration. I use it for random curiosities and to hold a valet box. It has one shelf, no doors.
