Do they have insurance?

If so, is there a water source above that you could leave "accidentally" running for a few days?

It would just take a huge amount of time and effort (= money) for it to look good

I would not be surprised if the total bill for putting lipstick on this pig was just about the same as the bill to re-do it with the proper grade wood and simply prime/paint-ing that
Actually, I would not be surprised if it were more

Absotutely. We've been down that road so many times. It seems there is not enough we can do to educate those who install such materials. There is a prevailing mindset out there that "the painters will take care of it". Then in the end guess who looks ridiculously expensive?

Good Luck, that is way more work than I would want to do. I agree, I don't know if you can ever get that to look right. Make sure you put in your contract that if it bleeds through in the future after expansion and what-not that it will be an extra charge to fix it.

Thanks for all the help!
The HO ordered clear pine, they were out so she got knotty pine
It is face nailed every 16 inches, carpenter did not sand edges!
We are going to discuss this more before proceeding.

When they are not looking, throw up some pergo flooring.

Throw a couple of coats of poly on and call it a day, errr, call it rustic.

I wish you the best on the project!

Knotty pine look great with clear, especially in log home.

For future reference, you might want to let the customer know that there are other grades of pine. If you can't get or afford clear (no knots), then go to #1, #2 etc. These grades have some knots, but not nearly as many as knotty pine. And are generally less expensive than clear or knotty. Naughty pine at times like this.

Nice job RC, how long did the job take and what method did you use?

Thanks, on the T&G ceiling, patch and prep, spray SW shellac primer, then a Devoe high hide primer, patch and sand, more high hide primer, SW finish paint.
Took 9 days, me and 2 helpers. 5,000 sq feet living, 2,000 sq garage. 20 degree weather, lots of snow.
HO was pretty involved and great to work with.
Lot of MDF trim, turned out like glass.
Here in Utah, having a 2 year food supply is a big thing. My helper spent a full day caulking the 20 by 10 pantry with angled shelves!

Sounds like someone chose the wrong product for that lid, if they now want to patch and fill...

I'd do it, but they better have DEEEP pockets!

Gonna take every type of filler from bondo to zar!

JTP glad you took my advice...not sure way more people can not get their head around using glue. I will bet any money that six months from now that the knots will be burning through on that ceiling.
