Remodeling dining room

Post by Dwils204 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 9:21 am

I am going to remodel my dining room and put true 3/4" shiplap on the walls. I cannot figure our how to reapply the trim. All of the new fad on the internet is using 1/4" underlayment so it is very simple to just apply the wood and still have dimension against the trim and at the doorways and windows. has anyone used 3/4" shiplap before and do you have pictures where is meets with chair rail, baseboard, window and doorway molding? I don't know why but trying to picture it is really tripping me up and I would like to see it before buying all the materials to complete the project. :D

So I am not sure if I 100% follow your question but to do this reno you would need to remove all existing trim and install the ship lap then either cut and install new trim or recut the old trim to fit the new dimensions. You would also need to extend all door and window jams and electrical boxes because of the 3/4" change of wall thickness.

Yes. Sorry I worded that kind of weird. I know I will need to remove all of the trim. I an wondering If i will be able to end at the new door trim and window trim or if the width of the boards will be identical. I was researching some more and noticed most shiplap is .625" and I anticipate using 1x common pine for trim which would leave .125" to stick out past the shiplap. I am just worried that there wont be enough difference in width and the room wont have any pop because the trim and the shiplap are almost level. I assume I could resolve this by making sure the trim, shiplap, and walls are not the same color.

Sidenote, can I just move the outlets out to the shiplap or do i need to actually extend the boxes to stay in code?

What I was saying in the first post is you could remove the window/door trim ,extend the jams the thickness of the ship lap install the ship lap to near the new jams and re-install the trim over the ship lap. You could just install the trim around the existing windows and doors and but the ship lap to it. I have seen that before and with the materials you are using it does get done that way sometimes if that is the look you want.
To meet code you must add an extension ring to the electrical boxes which is really easy. There are metal or plastic ones depending on your box style.

After looking at it some more I am definitely going to have to remove window and door trim but probably not build out as the color contrast will offer enough dimension to the room. Now the dilemma I am having is whether or not to miter the corners or just run one of the walls directly to the corner and overlap on either side.

Any suggestions on what to use as a chair rail? With the boards being .625" I have no idea what to put above it other than brickmold or 1x2.

You could use 1x2 for sure what ever you want really.

Wife changed the plans at the last minute. Material list is almost identical except now I am covering one entire wall in the shiplap. I had to build a decorative false doorway to stop the shiplap at the end of the wall without having an exposed end. I want to put crown or similar decorative molding around the rest of the room.Can I lay that directly on top of the shiplap or does the shiplap need to stop for that molding to go above it? PS. I have a few pics from this project already ill post them from my phone.

The ship lap needs to be installed before the crown right to ceiling .

Thinking about it the other day and realized I have not posted anything since last march. The dining room is done now. I am still making my way through the table from the other post but I will post some pictures there in a few minutes as well

Thanks! The basement is a few down the road. There is no egress right now and by code if I finish the space and get the permits (you know, do it the right way hahaha) there will need to be about 5000 in prep work done to just begin the project.
