I've never been much of one for finish work, but it turns out that's the most expensive kind of labor to hire. So today I installed trim on 5 doors (I'd done the other two previously). My back aches, my hands are sore, and I have a few smashed fingers, but the trim's up, looks good, and I have the satisfaction of knowing that I'm not a complete klutz. Debra followed behind me with the wood putty to cover up the nail holes. We can start sanding tomorrow and then we break out the paint.
This garage conversion is taking much longer than we expected, but that's what you get when you don't have a schedule. Just like a software project, if you don't have a schedule then you're just fooling around.
