                              Step 83 - The Master Bedroom, Bathroom and Closet Ceiling and Walls
                       Chip has made a lot of progess on installing the walls for the master bedroom, bathroom, and closet. 
                         He had to slow down a little because we need to include the conduit for a security system, and
                                   he then broke his arm, tripping over the dog while walking him one night.

                                           Chip mocked up the bathroom and closets walls to accommodate existing plumbing lines. 

                                                                   We made sure the walls would work within the existing space.

    We offset the walls of the closet to accommodate door trim.                    Here's the panoramic view of the future walls.

                                                       We were able to put up the first level of the framed walls by ourselves.

                                          Chip designed the headers for the sliding doors and installed them with a little help from Clada.

  Chip installed the wall that separates the bathroom and closet, add the shower wall.   The temporary sliding door works well.

                                        Chip worked hard to install the second level corners since they had to match the exposed ceiling.

                       We needed some help from our friends to lift the rest of the second level, which Chip had constructed on the ground.           

  We spent some time figuring out the dimensions for the bedroom canopy.   MBR Walls13

    Chip has finished framing the canopy.                                                       

                                                                    More to come...this journey is continuing.
