I need your help.. I can't figure out this cut. I want the crown molding to come down that spot. I made the top cut as if it was going to continue along the top.. which i think is wrong because I can't figure out the angle to make the vertical piece connect flush.

if only this was as easy as the baseboards! ugh.

HELP PLEASE

...or you could end the lower level trim by doing an interior miter and end the trim. Then trim the upper level. Typically I wouldn't use the crown type moulding vertically. I would spackle the corner and make it clean.

I'm about to leave work here soon and tackle this project.. not sure which way I'm leaning but I love clean looks that's for sure.

With that said, I'm wondering if I can spackle away or need to get that elbow piece in there first..

(it's definitely not called an elbow piece lmao but the brace looking thing)

this project!!!

Yep a cope cut is the way to go.. Put one piece flush up to the wall corner, cut the other at 45 angle then cut back around the shape then but it up to the flush corner piece . Buy a coping saw like the one above with make this easy.

Also, get yourself some curved and detail files. After you cope you can use the files to get the fit better. Then caulk will fill in the rest. 8)

They make you jump through hoops today. Congrats! May you be close to a scanner and fax until closing, because they will be asking for many documents until it all over!

Ended up mudding that little area from above. Going to sand and paint it today.

The baseboard though looks on point!

I'll post updated pictures sooner then later

I rescreened full coverage screens with 80% sunscreen mesh for the windows on the East side of my place. Blocks the morning sun and also provides privacy; since I have a neighbor on that side of the house.

:oops: Don't laugh...I used binder clips to hold them in the openings - this allowed me to adjust the fit in the opening due to inconsistencies in the block window opening. It might not look terrific, but using the silver "handles" of the clips to wedge into extruded block (see insert pic) crevices worked perfectly holding the screen in place. Knowing what a bitch it is to try to nail/screw into block...I decided the clips are going to have to do, for now.
