Jack helping us move the basement stairscomments (1) March 16th, 2011 in Project Gallery
We got 2-year-old Jack, a Shetland Sheepdog, a month ago from a couple that could no longer keep him. He is new at carpentry but he's a fast learner and doesn't sleep on the job.
The project Jack and I are working on is the moving of our ranch's basement stairs from the kitchen to a new location, which was once a very small bedroom. The stairs will be where Jack is sitting. The plywood wall behind him will be the back wall of our new master bedroom closet. Plywood gives a nice backer behind the drywall to mount various hangers anywhere in the closet without having to hunt for studs.
One bonus from the move is having 30" added to the length of our dining room. Another is gaining about 45 square feet in the kitchen. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
