You spray carpeting, too? I didn't know what was possible.

I did all the woodwork myself too. It's our family cabin.

I usually use Minwax stain and put it on with a rag then wipe off excessive. Then put on at least 2, coats of Minwax poly sanding between coats.
I usually do all the trim on sawhorses uncut. Then during and after install finish the cut edges carefully.

Great looking woodwork, did you want to come and do mine? I can pay you inpulls behind my boat!

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions, it sounds as though it may be easier to skip the spraying and go with the sponge/rag approach. I do plan to do all painting and staining prior to the trim going up as well as flooring so that all cuts are completely hidden.

In this house, I sprayed a base coat everywhere and then rolled accent colors.

I actually had a buddy spray and I back rolled with a roller so that any future patchwork will match well as spray will have a different appearance than brushed/rolled patch painting.

It's been a little while since I have updated as we have moved into the slower, somewhat less interesting portion of the construction. All of the rough plumbing is done although, the inspector came out and failed me on a couple of items. The long and shot of it was that I opted to pull my own plumbing permit and hire my cousin, who is a plumber, to do the work. Unlike many instances where it is a bad idea to hire family, my cousin is an incredible plumber and takes extreme pride in his work, actually, very proud of what he has become. Anyways, so the inspector comes out and gets a quick sense for the fact that I am not the actual plumber and decides to fail me for a couple of really stupid things that are actually overdone according to the local codes (my cousin was not able to be there for the inspection as he is doing this on the side and holds down a full-time plumbing job for a larger company). Moral of the story, if the actual plumber is there I almost gaurantee he would not have failed me. So we will work it out.

Spent the weekend connecting the gasline and fitting the Redi-Tile shower base (cool product if you have never seen one and eliminates the possible leaking issues with a custom shower and you do not have to create the base slope.....granted the product is not cheap).
Did the elcetrical walk-thru on Saturday and they are getting started today. The HVAC is finishing up today and I may try to get concrete in the basement by the end of the week if everything falls into place!
I'll get a few new pics this week to freshen things up a bit!

babysitting the inspectors is something I always do on my jobs. They like to show just how much 'power' they have! Most of them have no clue about anything!

Yep, it was a calculated risk that I took when opting to go this route and plain and simple the guy knew he could get push me around. I made it a point to oviously be nice and asked about his background, etc... funny thing is the guy was never a plumber yet he is the plumbing inspector. I realize that there are a lot of people out there who are inspectors for various industries/trades who have never actually done any of the work themselves, they simply passed a test and know what the code book says but fail to understand what actually works in practical application. I had a 50/50 chance on which inspector I was going to get and unfortunately, I got the ball-buster and have learned my lesson!
