You never know where the table saw is going to show up next. Over the course of the project, I've seen the carpentry equipment move all over our property. There's everything from band saws and table saws to mitering to molding setups.
Before demo and when the weather was nice, a lot of the equipment started off in the basement or garage.
As work moved to the basement and garage, the equipment migrated up to the first and second floors, where most of the interior work was being done.
What is most impressive is that all of the work takes place on the property. For example, Tommy has knives made up for all the moldings and cuts them all on site. With so much trim detail being carried throughout the house, it's pretty tough to talk on a cell phone with the ceasless whine and buzz of steel against wood.
And now that we are finally beginning to apply trim and make a push to finish the first floor, much of the equipment has made its way out to our front porch. Plus, with the weather getting a little colder, Tommy put up plastic sheets and even brought in a heater. Guess we should have insulated! :)
