door jam

As it is above, so it is below

We’re adding a door to the music room in the basement. To do so I needed to build an extension to the wall coming down from the ceiling.  The extension I built is about 10″ wide by 2′ long.  I’ve been working on it for a week because I have no idea what I’m doing.  Every time I put the joint compound on, I sand it all off again just so I can put more on.

It reminds me a little bit of Spinal Tap when the mini-Stonehenge was lowered from the ceiling.  Kind of like that.  In a way I’m building a really big wall, only smaller. If anyone needs me to build them a teeny tiny house I’ll know how to do it.
