Hanging Drywall

Posted by Mike on March 27th, 2014 at 5:21 pm

We’ve got drywall. I repeat, we have got DRYWALL!  OK. That’s a pretty big deal. It is amazing how different a house looks when there are actually walls. If you don’t believe me, just watch the video tour below. Whoops!  I said insulation when I meant drywall.

Not much to say about hanging the drywall. Not really any drama or problems. It took a while to get to this point because we failed rough plumbing inspection twice and we failed our rough framing inspection once. But once those were done we had insulation installed in a day and then the drywall started. The drywall was delivered Thursday, they started hanging last Friday (just 2 guys), continued Monday (still just 2 guys), had another join them Tuesday and Wednesday, and that was it. I had an inspection today and they passed. Tomorrow hopefully the crew for taping and mudding joints will start. They claim that take about 3 or 4 days. I hope so. I guess I better find a painter.

Here are a few photos of the project:
