Driveway in use, coffer trim up

 
Coffer trim was built and stained off site then finally assembly was done in the house on the floor.  Basically the trim is a rectangle formed as a squared off letter J so that the rope lighting has somewhere to sit.  The trim is attached to the ceiling with metal brackets that will need to be painted over.  It also creates gaps between the ceiling wall board and the trim because the wall board is not completely flat.  The gaps were filled in with dark brown caulking.

Using a stain also helps tie the coffer trim to the window trim and looks more finished that a contrasting color.  Next is to get the rope lighting installed.  Electrical boxes are already there with switches in place too.

I was finally able to use the driveway.  So nice.  Awaiting permit for garage electric so I can have opener for door installed.  There is no way I can reach up to close it.
I have been off the air so long because I have been watering the grass seed the contractor spread around and with the heat here in NJ that has been an all day task.
