Oye!!!!!! Once I finally made the "jump" to attach the stairs, it went pretty fast! With Thanksgiving and getting my wisdom teeth pulled, it just got put off. Dolly's gonna be living in an igloo at this rate!

I still want to be able to take the back off for when I work on the inside front. Having thru and thru access has proved to be a smart idea.
Pulling the back off, I'm able to apply the paneling and chair rail to the back wall:
