Did you hang the sheet rock on the garage ceiling and then blow in insulation from above?




No, the drywall went on the garage ceiling first. However, the drywallers left sheets of sheetrock off select spots, so the insulation crew could insulate. Then the insulation crew blew in the insulation from where the sheetrock was missing. They net the area with a fiberglass mesh where the drywall was missing to hold up the insulation. Lastly, the drywall crew came back and installed the missing pieces of sheetrock.

Kitchen Cabinets just got delivered. I'm letting them adjust to the humidity for a few days before I install them.

The plumbing was finished last week, so we have a working bathroom. That was big! We put in three long days of work. I finished wiring the place inside and out, and even managed to get most of the lighting installed and all of the smoke detectors. I also hung a 50 plasma TV and installed and wired a surround sound system. My wife painted nonstop and got a lot of the painting done.

I'm awfully envious of this whole project!

Looks good. You've done a lot of work in a fairly short time. I see the puppy dog got the front row center spot with the bed!

That's our spoiled girl "Mocha." The pic is of her playing catch the snowball. She also likes to take out snowmen, and she will cut down any she sees standing:

Just to review the priorities:

1. Working bathroom
2. 50" plasma TV
3. Kitchen cabinets





You must be so totally bored with the "That is awesome, I am so jealous" comments by now.













(That is awesome, and I am jealous.)


Down to just a blue car now.

Nice job Bill. My hat is off to your wife for doing so much of the painting. I HATE painting like that!! We were going to paint our house inside back when it was built 6 years ago. I took a week & all we got done was fill & sand the nail holes in the trim & caulk upstairs. That's when I realized it was WAAAAY more work than I thought. I found a crew to paint the whole inside of the house for $2,600 - we supplied the paint. They got it done in a little over a week. Best $2,600 we ever spent.

I love in-progress construction pics, they make my naughty place warm and tingly.
