Days of Drywall

Jacob and I had another really productive weekend! With the help of our dads yesterday we were able to get more electrical work done (thanks Randy!) and hang a lot of drywall (thanks dad!). This morning Jacob and I even found the energy to get to Home Depot shortly after 7am to get rigid foam board to insulate a ceiling part of our room that didn’t get spray foamed.

While Jacob worked on rigid foam installation, I spent the whole morning measuring, cutting and hanging more drywall! We are almost completely done with the bedroom now which is awesome! We just have to drywall our future reading nook/wood stove area but in order to do that we first needed to install the rigid foam (which is now done). We also still have to install a replacement window because the current window in our nook is single pane and frosted (because our nook used to be our “master” bathroom) before we can hang drywall on one of the walls.

the difference between a wall without drywall on it and one with the drywall hung is amazing

the skinny wall on the left was the most tedious piece I had to hang (an outlet and a notch for the beam had to be incorporated)

Next weekend we are going to hopefully get that window installed and finish the entire bedroom portion and then get started on hanging the special bathroom drywall! We’re getting closer and closer- and now maybe we are even close enough to start picking out paint? Not sure, but it’s fun to think about at least!

PS- An amusing photo I just came across from our demo stage of this back room….

this piece of rotting wood was all that was left of the "support" that was supposed to hold up one corner of the porch that would become our laundry room- this is why you don't stick wood straight into the ground!
