The garage is mostly finished, the house warm and somewhat dried out, and the walls ready for some drywall. This week marks the start of the next big step forward with our house as Jerry cracks open the 5 gallon buckets of drywall and starts mudding his way around my bedroom and family room as Mike finishes hanging sheet rock in the rest of the house.
Monday was the start with the tape coat being applied in my bedroom and family room. It’s crazy how much just this little step (filling in a few cracks) is really bringing alive how amazing everything is starting to come together.
A day later and another coat of mud and everything is looking like perfection. I can already tell that you won’t be able to see a seam in the place.
I’ve got a pretty picky eye for these sorts of things… Probably one of the greatest attributes or most annoying downfalls of my overly particular engineering mind, but is certainly helps me appreciate a job well done. It always seems like there are two types of people who have drywalled… Those who think they’re just amazing, and those who actually are. So far it’s obvious we’re dealing with the latter.
Tomorrow we’re hoping to make some big decisions and get the majority of our flooring ordered to be ready just after the holidays. Let’s hope we can stick with our mind being made up, move forward, and get some of these choices made. Then, dad and I will be installing several electrical boxes to house all the speaker wiring distribution. Should be a great day!
