Meeting the Trim Carpenter
Friday, April 16
Went out to the site today to meet the trim carpenter. They are usually in high demand so we have to book them early.

The trim carpenter is responsible for the finish carpentry in the house--moldings, fireplace mantles, window casings, etc.

We went through the house and discussed ideas for various part of the house. He bought a couple of gorgeous pictures along for the arch in the dining room and kitchen. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be able to afford his version.

We did come up with a basic trim package:

  • Double crown moldings in the dining room
  • Crown moldings in all other rooms
  • 3 1/2" window casing with window sills
  • A simple oak mantel for the fireplace
  • We are still thinking about the design of the columns and arches.
