Dry-fit of staircase and landing railing looks good:
Added a matboard back to staircase-- matboard is flexible enough that it went with the curve. Painted, sanded, repainted, spackled, repainted, gessoed staircase and it still looked terrible. Decided to rip off those photo-corners and wallpaper the thing, with matboard trim. Much better (after cutting out mirror image of wallpaper trace that I actually needed ):
I got one of those battery boxes, though 17" may be a bit short for some of the runs (may have to do some splicing); you can see here where I had to un-install the bathroom tile flooring because I'd forgotten that I needed to lay a wire run here for the kitchen light below it. Good thing that plastic tiling peels right off! Installed the bay walls because I need to install the 3rd floor to start routing the wire-works:
I love the matte yellow kitchen tile floor that I got from Ernie's.
