Yet another weekend of workin’ the wine cellar. It’s getting down to the exciting, yet frightening part. Frightening in that one wrong cut and I can screw a lot of things up. The latest pics show the plank paneling about done. There’s still a little more to put up. You will notice I have the 8 holes cut for the smal 3" cans that will circle the perimiter of the wine racks. These can be aimed down towards the racks and will provide the mood one needs when retiring to the cellar to bust open a bottle of the finest.
Still to do… the lower sofit under the racks. I expect this to be the most difficult part and the part that can make the whole plan work… or suck. I also need to plumb in the stationary tub. I’ve been aching to do this but I’ve held off so that it does not get in the way of the other millwork happening around the room. This thing has been waiting to go in since Oct. 2005! The last things to do are finish the tile behind the sink, install the racks and put up the crown molding. The crown molding will set this space off like nothing else. I’m telling you, it will be on fire! I got my sights set on some awesome crown molding and I’m holding off until my budget allows. Yes people, I’m talking musuem-like crown molding. This is the stuff you just can’t justify putting in many places.
Stay tuned for the next update in a week or so.
