Maine Escape DAY 12 Down We Go

DAY 12.0 – Down We Go

PREVIOUSLY – Maine Escape

Yesterday at the Maine Escape we tread very carefully building the basement steps, while Liz built a stone Patio. Today we complete the steps and say farewell to our favorite woodchuck Duarte.

STEP IN TIME – Maine Escape

The steps are done and get finished. That means a lot of sanding and some filling. To make them durable they are going to get 3 coats of high gloss polyurethane. But 1st, they get sealed with water based polyacrylic to prevent staining.

All Treads are In

Job Well Done


DOWN WE GO – Maine Escape

It’s great to have quick and easy access to the basement. The pups, however, were a bit confused about the route and had to be coerced into going down them.

TOMORROW – Maine Escape

One craftsman leaves and another comes in. Thank you, Jon Duarte for helping me custom craft the Double-Winder Staircase. Tomorrow Carlos Dos Santos shows up to begin cladding the basement.

Thanks for tuning in,
