When I bought the house, it also came with an annex with a storage room. The storage room wasn’t finished, just concrete for floor and plywood for walls. No ceiling either for that matter.
Started with some paint then…
I reckoned it could be a bit different with just a layer of paint, so that the texture of the wood behind showed through.
I also got some shelving up, trying to organize everything and fit even more in there.
I have since this picture was taken gotten more shelves there.
The big problem in this room was the lack of any electricity. So no outlets or lights. It quickly became a problem during the winter months. The other room in here had electricity, and a fuse box, so I took down some of the wall panels and ran wires for a ceiling light, outlets and outside illumination.
Ended up with this, a motion sensor to turn on the lights in the ceiling. Plus the other switch for the outside light, which is remotely controlled by my Home Automation software.
Here’s the ceiling light, where you can see the next project. Finish the ceiling 😛
So, when the electricity was in orden, I wanted to get the mouldings around the doors done.
First was the wood that goes from the door frame and into the room, level with the wall plates. Cut them up and smacked them in. Became a big room at the top, but small enough to be hidden behind the moulding.
Stuffed insulation into the crevices and cut the plastic a bit shorter and tucked it in and around the insulation.
First door and moulding.
And the last door.
Oh yeah, I also tried Kiwi-tiles for the floor. Quite happy with them! Only thing is I think they are a bit too light in the colour, so I will order the rest in dark gray instead. And then put the light gray in the middle of the room, making a “design” out of it.
So that’s all for now, hopefully I will be able to finish the floor and ceiling through the summer.
