    You got skills @silla . Did you set up a small saw on that plank for cuts . Or everything went back down to the floor for cuts .

    Yeah, I trimmed whole home with 1 other finish carpenter, an apprentice, and a laborer. We were on the job for about 1 year. Here are some pics of the room the cupola rest in. Its a 4 piece flying crown that measures over 13 inches. I also threw in a pic of the main stair case, where we did some panel work.

    Welcome to the place and wow, Your work is beautiful. Thanks for the pics, We like pics here

    Wow surprised you don’t have a bigger crew to get it done faster than that. A couple of the bigger ones we have done about the same size we had about 6 finish carpenters.

    This home took 2 years for us to get the C/O. Getting decisions was tough, So my employer settled with a smaller crew as there was no big rush until the client realized the trim work was almost done. Still today, 7 months later the guy still has a dirt lawn. Its crazy, the home is still not done.

    At the top of the scaffold, I had to use a 8 foot ladder so i could climb up into the 30 inch x 30 inch +/- cupola, where I set up a plank that i had to jump up on to. I had just enough room on the scaffold for my hand tools and my apprentice, there was just enough space in the cupola for me to move around in. The apprentice and I had to pass the tools back and forth. We set up a bucket rope, to pass material up and down to my cut man on the floor.

    In hind sight, is was the craziest thing i might have ever done.

    This is amazing work! Beautiful job. That is amazing that it took 1 year, but seeing all the quality work it is understandable. Good stuff!
