The Office...

Sheetrocking continues....

Big changes! What a difference it makes to have the sheetrock up! I can't believe how much brighter it is in the back hall.

The Office
Worked on the Office yesterday. Ceiling is all sheetrocked. Began the west wall but didn't get much farther than that.

While Rich & Matt installed sheetrock, I worked on taping the back hall.

I don't mind the sheetrock, but it's the mudding I'm not very good at ... we're trading services with a friend! He's going to mud for us and I'm giving him my hubby for a day! Our friend is installing a geo thermal heating/cooling system starting next month! Love the sight and glad to find a fellow do-it-yourselfer!!!

kiwi-that is awesome that you have someone to do your mudding! I'm about ready to get going on the mud/sanding in the kitchen.

We had an geothermal system installed! We love it!!! It's always so toasting in here! We heat 8000 square feet and our largest bill for heat and all our electric needs was $240! Tell him he'll love it too!

So what's next for you guys?

I just watched your utube mudding video - that's the guy my hubby loves to watch!!!

Hubby is taking Thursday and Friday off ... so it will be 4 intensive days working on the kitchen.

We'll be multi-tasking - from electrical, taking off the ceiling, moving the ducting, moving the plumbing and hopefully getting rid of the old sink and setting up some of the new base cabinets with a temp sink/bench.

After viewing the u-tube, I'm thinking I might give mudding another try ... but I hate all the fine dust! How do you deal with the dust? It's in everything and lives everywhere!!!

I'll tell my friends about the geothermal system! They will be please to know.

Take care and you're doing an awesome job!!!

Oh my gosh kiwi! You've got a big couple days coming up!

Sigh... I'm sanding right now.. I just vacuum up the dust as best as I can. The house is pretty much unfinished so it just blends in.

Hope you guys can get lots done! My hubby is off on Friday... hope he can finish the sheetrock in the office!

And I so want to finish the drywall work in the kitchen so that I can prime and paint!!!!! Will be sooo awesome to get to that point!!!!

Then flooring! Yeah! Been without a kitchen since October... hot plates are getting old!
