|Phase 1 - Finished!|
This is where we began:
|Dog kennel: Unfinished dry wall, exposed insulation (thanks to Lucy!)|
Unfinished fence boards to protect the drywall from the chewer (aka Lucy).
Basically, it was a terrible eyesore.
Honestly, the dog have never complained, but it was certainly an eyesore. I've been promising Buttercup that I'd do something about it for more than a year and my productivity project seemed to have been the perfect motivation. Still, we had the self-imposed constraint of using stuff we already had laying around to manage our transformation. This had to be a completely free project.
Step 1 - Buttercup was itching to get painting, so I handed her the "mango madness" left from our formerly "Macaroni & Cheese" basement and set her free.

|This wall needed to be insulated, so I used a box|
cutter and a knife and cut a piece of rigid insulation to fit.
After that, I pieced together the wainscoting and installed it all. The fiberglass insulation was fine, it just needed to get tucked.
|Finished wainscoting and trim board...|
|A few coats of paint did wonders for these boards!|
|Phase 1 is Finished, but Phase 2 is bouncing around in my mind.|
116 Days and counting til Superman comes home. I'd say we get to count this one as productive, too, wouldn't you?
