There are now walls in the animal room. Gasp. Even when we moved in there were holes in the paneling they used as "walls" and one side was just open to the framing. So this is quite a wonderful development.
Before the drywall was hung I worked on putting in the insulation. This room gets oppressively hot in the afternoon because it's west facing, and uncomfortably cold because, like I said before, there were holes in the wall for the cold to get in. Insulation was a very welcome arrival
I made sure to slice lines in the insulation to accommodate all the wiring
For such a small room there were lots of electrical boxes to cut around and thinner wall bays to shove the insulation in because of the framing for the window
It wasn't my best work...
But it got the job done
Soon enough it was time to hang the drywall. And here's where we suck. We're good at a lot of things, can get by on a ton of others, but for some reason we suck horribly at hanging drywall. I don't know what it is. You'd think by now we would have gotten good at it. Nope. Our measurements are off, we accidentally crack pieces, we fuck up corners and those stupid drywall screws are the bane of our existence. Despite our lack of supreme drywall hanging skills, we worked on getting it up in the room
And here's where we suck.
Shaving down a piece of drywall because it didn't fit
Breaking a corner
And screws all over the place that are crooked, not screwed in all the way, not looking good. But hey, the drywall is up, and there's nothing we can't mask with some mad mud and taping skills :)
