Happy New Year (With trim!)

The holidays slowed progress on the house a fair bit. It was such a huge change to see the walls up that the relatively small work (patching and sanding) just seemed to drag on. Finally though, trim began to appear around the windows and doors and the look of our house was utterly changed.

It's ironic that this totally period looking trim is all MDF. Unlike wood, it won't move or crack over the years. It's also the opportunity for our contractor Mark to show his skills as a craftsman. The look of the trim is just right, not to big, but it makes all the rooms look special.
