Ground Floor of the Bungalow Goes Up

This week I made some more progress with the bungalow. Before I glued the ground floor walls up I needed to finish the panelling. 

I cut down the interior wall to make a craftsman style room divider. 

I built up the divider with base wood. 

I made the panelling for the lounge room as well, and stained it to give it a rich wood colour.

I then glued the ground floor walls to the base. I pre-painted the base, though I intend to put down real wood flooring soon.

The struggle to choose the right wall paper continues...

Thanks for all your tips in my last post! They were most helpful.


  1. This is beautiful work! I am afraid I am not much of a help to decide what wallpaper you have to choose ;)! All sorts of wallpaper are gorgeous!
    Hugs, Ilona

  2. Looking terrific! Great sense of proportion and detail.

    You're on your own with the wall paper choice. I think the above sample looks terrific. I've been searching for weeks for my English cottage bathroom wallpaper. There are so many choices.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful project.

    All best,

  3. Your bungalow is looking great. I really like the windows. I like your choice of wallpaper also. IndyPoppy

    big hug,

  5. Your divider is looking great! You are so clever to come up with these ideas, and patient too.

    Hmmm, the wallpaper choice is always a difficult one, good luck with that.
