Ms. G. requested shiplap as part of her reno; I assumed the quarter inch plywood style like you see on Pinterest for $80, but she preferred Lowe’s pre-painted MDF shiplap, and it was actually quite nice to work with.
First I had to build out part of the wall.
Then the shiplap went on.
While I was at it there was a stair skirting to do (the carpet is getting replaced)
And finally the railing needed to be sanded and stained. I also added some custom brackets and two more short railings. She had her house professionally painted before I put the railings on. It looks amazing!
