I’m on a kick to make my home more energy efficient. Yeah! First project – a better attic access door. Boring! Thank goodness I have 2 willing girlfriends to help me… and I must say it’s turning out to be anything but boring!
So we sketched out our plan, knocked a bigger hole in the wall (after verifying it was not structural), built a plywood door panel, applied insulation to the back of it and then…
ONE YEAR LATER! Back to work… We had plenty of time to think about it, ahem, and decided to experiment with our Seattle street signs. We’re not done yet, but we know what we’re doing – so that’s progress! We laid the door on the ground, ran a string parallel to the edges (so that when the plywood was covered up with signs, we could still see an outline of the door), and began to play with the sign layout. We were inspired by seamster’s super fab dresser revamp, plus he gave handy tips for working with old signs. We’ve been using our chop saw with the wood blade, and so far so good (easy!). Next we will finish fitting the signs, file the edges, install an industrial handle and surface mount some rusty hinges. Soon!!
