Office renovation

Most of April and May was spent with the office in various states of disrepair. When we decided to have an office, Jenn and I though it would be nicer to remove the trim around the window, closet, door and the horrid access panel to provide a more industrial look. After removing the window trim, I decided to replace the two panels with one large door. It sounds easy, but it took a lot of time, working mostly at night. I'd sand, clean up, and put down some more joint compound to build up the edges where the trim was pulled off. Each layer needed to dry overnight so I could usually only get one step done at a time. I spent a Saturday building a frame and then mounting a drywall panel to it. Once that was up, the paint went up pretty easily.
