Baby Nursery

I had to turn an outdated office into a modern nursery for my new baby. With the help of a few friends and many different Ryobi tools into a circular saw, a reciprocating saw, and the sliding compound miter saw with laser we were able to achieve a quality professional finish! After removing multiple layers of flooring with the circular saw and some pry bars including 2 layers of laminate, hardwood, tile, 2 sub floors, and shims we proceeded to cut out multiple sagging joists with the reciprocating saw that needed to be replaced. Once the joists were replaced we put down a new 3/4" plywood sub floor with laminate flooring over top. Using the miter saw to cut the flooring made for clean precise cuts. We also replaced some of the electrical wiring, outlets and a switch. The windows were replaced by a local contractor because with I don't have experience with window replacement and there is no room for errors. We closed in the closet with studs and sheet rock and replaced all of the all of the base molding in the room. The door was refinished and all hardware was replaced. The finished product was nothing short of breathtaking as far as I'm concerned.
