I think we will just show photos today. I am tired...
|I started in the dining room. I got it all mudded and taped ...and we will talk about that corner later...|
|I painted dining room ceiling...needs texture added next weekend...That is a temporary light fixture. We haven't found the one we want yet..|
|we have a tendency to use every tool imaginable.. and the tool we need is never in the same room we need it. It's always in the other room..|
|This seems to be leaking...|
|and we are back to that corner of the dining room...|
The photo above shows the reason for a new direction in the dining room. When we bought the house the dining room had drywall above and 1/2 inch plywood beneath and we decided we would put beadboard halfway up with a chair rail. Well we seem to have run into a problem. See the upright piece of wood in the corner? Just to the left of it is a piece of 1/2 inch plywood. We don't know why he put the plywood there instead of drywall. It's the only place in the whole room that has plywood that high.. I removed the two pieces of drywall adjacent to it and then discovered that the piece of plywood goes BEHIND that big post. There is no way to get it out unless we take down the whole wall. That isn't gonna happen. SO, we have been forced to chang the dining room design. We will now install bead board all the way to the ceiling and add crown molding. Then we will add bead board to the kitchen half way up with a chair rail to tie the two rooms together. This means I don't have to do anymore mudding and taping in the dining room. YIPPEE!!
But that wasn't the only problem we found. Some of the drywall wasn't screwed into anything and when you pushed on it it moved...that isn't supposed to happen. So I took the piece of drywall down, Rich added a nailer and put it back up. sheesh...this guy couldn't do anything right...
|This is the before... In a couple of weeks I will show you the after...|
And I took a bit of video for you.. This is the "noise" we hear when we walk outside...
