It is finally starting to look like a room instead of where they filmed parts of Silence of the Lambs!
Hanging drywall doesn't seem like it should be that hard, but there are several factors that made it really challenging:
- Drywall is HEAVY. OMG. So Heavy!
- I'm pretty sure I have a broken finger from playing wallyball 2 weeks ago.
- We should have rented a drywall lifter thing instead of relying on Marc's head, and a 2x4. (I think he might have given himself a "soft spot" like babies have)
- Neither our ceiling nor wall framing is at even 16" spacing like in new construction. This leads you to hit a stud for about every 5th screw you try to put in. All this while Marc is balancing a 50lb piece of drywall on his head.
Oh, good times! How we managed to keep our humor about it all, I don't know, but we did.
This first picture is Marc trying to prove to me that he is The Chosen One. Um, chosen by whom? The Sun Tunnel light?The second is him with his RotoZip cutter going to town! He is quite the master at cutting out holes for lights and electrical boxes. I, on the other hand, measured twice, cut once and STILL somehow had them not line up!
