While we’ve been sheltering in place our contractor continued work non-stop on our game room’s window bench. Obie Bowman’s bench design will eventually be mirrored in the design for the barn door into the game room. We are so excited to see it take shape. I’m sure you will be too.
Open Framing Surrounds New Window
Framing around the enlarged window contains the added heater ducting above the bench and on-demand water heater at the left side.
Preparing the Frame Cover
Interior walls of the window bench prepped, painted, and dry in the living room.
The walls begin to take shape. Following that step, boards painted black provide the backing that will support the paneling.
The walls are just about finished.
Oak Planking Begins to Fill the Window Bench
Next, the walls are attached to the frames. They provide support and a distinctive highlighting for the oak paneling. The first boards are laid across the back and in the front. The best thing, besides the ceiling light, is the electrical socket with the USB outlet.
Oak planking begins to fill the game room’s window bench facing.
Oak planking continues to climb up the walls outlined by the black background.
Almost completed, the oak planking continues up the walls.
Artfully covering the water heater’s access the oak planks begin to fill the space.
The Finished Feature Wall Amazes
The oak planks stack up along the sides, as the project nears completion.
Whenever the ocean breezes flow there’s sure to be great ventilation throughout from nature’s Air Conditioning. Our easy-open windows provide excellent airflow into our game room and throughout the house.
Finally, with the bench finished it all comes together and looks fabulous. It just needs the details of pillows and cushions.
Flooring and Barn Door Are Next!
With the game room’s window seat finished, shy of the cushions it’s now on to laying the floor. Following the floor will be a sliding door that mirrors the design of the window bench. We are excited to see the next phase happening soon.
