The last blog post left us with the laminate removed and the floor area patched where a grate once was. In fact that grate, that I thought was for heat, turned out to be a cold air return (oops!) Regardless, I did not want it there.
I had to frame an angled wall just past the stairs.
Here is the view from the other side where the workshop will be. This shows why the wall had to be angled slightly, there is a window across from the stairs:
As you can see there is a lot of patching to do and drywall is not my forté.
I am happy with the progress, but still look forward to having my table saw and other tools out of storage and at the workshop.
