The internal doors were delivered last week – a great big pile of them!
This week, most of them have been installed and the architraves are going up around the doors and windows. The skirting boards are also going on.
I have learnt more in the last 2 weeks about mouldings than I care to know! Following on from selecting the skirting and picture rails we have now decide on the architraves and cornices.
We have chosen F8 (the second skirting) as the architrave; 90mm high with the 120mm skirt, 120mm high with the 200mm skirt.
(Update 28/5/14: Our builder has advised that 120mm architraves will be problematic, so they are all now 90mm).
The cornices were selected from Plaster Profiles Architectural Mouldings:
Federation Gutter (40) for the period areas (family, master bedroom, hallway and entrance way), 165 x 184 mm.
The toilet, laundry and walk in robe will have a plain cornice, Scotia (25c), 72 x 72 mm.
The remaining areas will be Stepped Ovolo (85) 123 x 123 mm.
