You're welcome (the drawing's easier than the "doing" ). I've done plenty of work in Alpharetta in the past, I live in Cumming, so right next door.

make sure ya snap some lines for all your heights on the walls so you don't have to keep measuring
just snap the lines for where you want your trim to be and then work off the lines, a little liquid nail and some brad nails caulk and paint
good luck

you know what they have those compressor and gun kits now available for so cheap that you'll be glad to own one
you'll be able to do so many things with it, the last one i saw at Home dumpo was probably 199 and it had 2 or 3 guns that came with it.
one job alone pays for it compare to sacrificing your finger tips to the mercy of the hammer gods

how to do this moulding work


Great information and link to software. Was wondering though, is there a less expensive design program for a DIY'er who only has a few projects? I couldn't justify the cost of this one (it looks great and wish I could).

We recently did an addition to our home, which included a staircase to access the master suite we did above the new garage. I am concerned because there were more stairs then I expected, and the case seems to just "shoot" up. I am wanting to do some wainscoting in the living room and extend it up the stairs to create an open appearance. I would love to mock up some different designs, to see what the best plan of action would be.

Thanks in advance for any additional info.

Enjoy your day!!

you could try sketchup.google.com and give sketchup a try.
i like/use Punch!Pro a lot myself.
real basic line drawings are easy with photofiltre.
i still have a free version install somewhere for sketchup.....

Your nail should go at least 3/4" into the base material.
