Amy Wynn shows Birgette how they're going to attach the pieces of wood to the face of the fireplace. Birgette asks her to do one first. Man, I hope she's putting those nails into the grout and not the tile; otherwise, it's bye-bye, tile. Even if they don't like the wood and want to pull it off, they're going to have holes in their grout. Maybe there won't be too many. Amy Wynn says that once the pieces are attached, she'll come in and sand the edges because they're quite rough. I hope she sands the surfaces, too.
Vern and Samm work on cutting thin pieces of molding to decorate the front of the media cabinet. Vern says that they have to be exact. Samm thinks they can handle it.
Amy Wynn seems to be marking the wood so that the nails will go into the grout and not the tile. Whew. Birgette fires in a nail.
Vern cuts some molding. He shows Samm a diagram that illustrates which cuts have to be mitred and which are straight.
Amy Wynn shows Gen's team a yoga pose ("Child's pose") that's great for when their backs are hurting later tonight. (She does the variation with the arms outstretched in front.) This is actually one of my favourite yoga poses. Birgette's legs aren't in quite the right position for this pose, but she and Kirk gamely imitate Amy Wynn. Gen comes in and says it's "so not yoga time." She then starts pushing down on the middle of Kirk's back, which I'm pretty certain is really not advisable for someone in this position. A yoga teacher might come around and gently press on your lower back to help you get a better stretch, but that's about it. Then Gen leans really heavily on Kirk's middle and upper back. If someone did that to me in this pose, I'd probably turn around and slap her, because I know it would hurt me like hell. Gen says she thinks she just cracked Kirk's back and thinks that's "cool." Yeah, I'll bet every yoga teacher and chiropractor watching this is real impressed. Amy Wynn begs Gen to do the same to her. Well, to each her own spinal injury, I guess. Gen obliges by pushing down on her back, too. Gen offers to "help" Birgette too, but Birgette says she's okay. Gen says they did a fantastic job of painting.
Vern and Kenny start to install the crown molding.
Gen assigns homework. They're to stain the wood Amy Wynn's currently attaching to the wall, and Birgette's to make some cushions for the seating area on the top shelf. (See, it even sounds ridiculous.) Gen says she'll help her with the "corner part."
