Building at the Bay Window was like Putting Together a 6 Layer Cake!

June 4, 2017

I've decided that building at the bay window was like putting together a 6 layer cake.  So many layers, so much patience during the process, and so much reward when it's all done!  So here's to our "cake layers":


Layer One: Installing Angled 2 x 4s for a stable backside


Layer Two: Installing Plywood for Stability and Surface for the Shiplap (repurposed from underneath our tile countertops)



Layer Three: Installing 2x4x for Surface for our End Posts







Layer Four: Facing the End Posts (whoohoo,  we are using repurposed wood from the deconstructed entertainment center in the den)


Layer Five: Adding the  Baseboard Molding








Layer Six: The final Layer!  Facing with Shiplap (using our money saving underlayment)




I believe it's time for the icing!  Stay tuned for the final reveal!  Baking time for this project (for those with day jobs) is 1.5 weekends!
