Looking good! Should give that snow blower a test run... Ya know...


We have a winter storm warning. The cars are in the driveway because the Ferrari, the lawn equipment and plants are in the attached garage. The snow blower for sure has a couple flat tires, the 4x4 on my bmw is not working because of a failed senior I think and Lana's Mercedes needs tires with tread.....I'm so not ready for winter :(

Finished hanging the drywall on the ceiling last night including a little framing around the stairs needed to complete the ceiling. Yay!

Hopefully the walls go quicker.....a little more sqft but should be easier to handle. I expect to be mudding by the end of the weekend. When I was on the stairs framing I noticed the cold breeze from the soffits.....I want to get the downstairs finished enough to move stuff into but I need to seal the upstairs area too, I heard itsx15f below normal today :(

Drywall finished on main floor. I didn't get any mud on though.....and I'm thinking as much as I want to do the mud and finish the main floor I probably need to move upstairs and get that sealed or it will not stay warm enough for the mud to ever dry on the main floor.

... or staple a piece of plastic across the opening to the attic and do it in spring.

What did you decide about the air supply plumbing?

I can't....the compressor is up there. I decided to punt on the airline decision and run it outside to walls....but I'm leaning toward the rapid air stuff

My younger son walked into the shop for the first time in a while looking for me yesterday and stopped what he was saying and paused as his head turned back and forth a couple times in what looked like disbelief ...."this looks really nice!"... :)

I ran out of wood and didn't Lana's car to go get more as I moved on to the mud and was just finishing up a base coat when he walked in.

Hopefully over the long holiday weekend I'll get all the draywall finished....that might be a bit optimistic as upstairs is a bit complicated but I'm going to try hard. Exactly a year ago over the Thanksgiving weekend we out up the exterior walls.

I really like using the 90 minute Durock Joint compound that comes in a bag for the taping and first coat of mud. I only use it for the first coat because it does not sand easy but it hardens really hard and gives you a nice joint and doesn't shrink or crack while curing. It's completely cured by the next morning and ready for 2nd and 3rd coats. I use the standard stuff in the green topped bucket for the second and third coat.
