This being my first wood working project, power saw, compressor and nail gun, I had/have a lot to learn. So far the base looks great. I'm envious of your corner photos! When a house is built on lilly pads (New Orleans) sometimes the words 'caulk it' can be substituted for explicits. Now, some gaps between the base and trim were too wide to ignore. So, this OCD-ish rookie woodworker cut a hole through the bottom of the sheetrock and shimmed between the rock and the stud behind it. There's still a gap; but..."caulk it". I'll put a plant in front of it.

Installing quarter round and boxing in windows will be next. I'm interested in hearing your solutions for closing the gaps!
