Yep, you guessed it. When I opened or closed it the bottom pushed against the floor. Sooo... Pry it off the wall. Wow that glue really worked well. And then reglue it slightly farther up the wall.
Yay. Success. And I can put a floor on the balcony and it still works.
To celebrate I gave it a doorknob.
|Sticky tacky glue dries clear thankfully.|
I also got the window for the head of the stairs done. I was pretty pleased with that.
|My in progress shot.|
|Taping the two sides together so the glue has a chance to dry|
|Narrow little hall but hopefully not too terrible.|
|With tape holding it in place while the glue dries. Of course|
|Isn't it pretty?|
|They stay in the little channel I carved.|
|You can hardly see the wires on top of the beams. I'm pretty pleased.|
|Some balsa patchwork|
|I need to glue the ceiling paper a little better but the trim looks nice.|
|Sorry its so blurry.|
|Can you tell what it is? Cork!|
|Hallway floor too.|
|I'm enjoying how it looks.|
|Kinda cool I think.|
And eventually I'll have to take everything down. That can wait until Nov 7th I think.
So Happy (belated) Halloween and hopefully I'll get more done on the house this week and have another update soon.
