I know, I know… how many days of looking at blank wallboard can I really find exiting enough to post on the internet, and here’s the answer: At least one more.
There was definite progress today, and let’s just reflect on the two months it took us to do the 400 sq ft Station, and be glad that two more bedrooms and the master bath were done in 8 hours (thanks to the professionals.)
The laundry room:
Spare bedroom 1:
Short hall connecting the bedrooms and study:
Spare bedroom 2:
Not bad for a days work.
Supposedly the kitchen, study, and great room (including the vaulted ceilings) will be done today… and if it wasn’t for the fact that my ceiling insulation was being pushed back until friday, we might have the whole thing taped and mudded this week as well.
One of the things about drywall is that you’ve got to keep the house around 60 degrees so the mud doesn’t crack, and with a geothermal system you can’t just keep pumping heat into a house that doesn’t retain it. (Anyone want me to draw a cartoon to explain that?) So, we’re basically being held hostage by the insulation company who I called in advance and scheduled for tomorrow and the whole “sorry we’re going to be two days late” thing is getting a little old guys.
But with this many walls in the house, who can really complain?
