I was able finish up cutting the main deck. I cut a filler piece for the east wall, filled a large gap on the south wall and re-cut the west wall that leads into the closet. I’ll still need to frame and deck the closet. That’s probably my next phase.
I also cut the curve piece for the valance. This is also my second attempt at this. The curve is an 18″ radius. To cut the curve, I drew it out on a 19 1/2″ square piece of plywood and jig sawed the curve, leaving the extra 1 1/2″ straight edge of plywood on the right angle sides. I then cut that 1 1/2″ straight edges from the curve and used them to mount the curve. This method allowed me to cut the whole 90 degree curve.
I also purchased valance lights. 34 1/2″ 24W T4 slim fluorescent lights from eBay dealer finestcorp2010. I like the slim design and linkability. The are 6400K color temp.
Once again thanks to my parents for taking the boys for the day.
