The last two weeks have belonged to the drywall team. Really – with all the fans and heaters there was no power left for any of the other crews! And although the process is somewhat lengthy (putting up the drywall, taping, mudding, and sanding) the visual change from the brown walls of insulation to the bright walls of drywall has been truly transformative!
At the end of each day, the team set up fans and heaters to cure the drywall mud. It contains a lot of water, so this was necessary to ensure the walls could be sanded and re-mudded the next day. After a few cycles of mudding and sanding, they applied the final coats of mud this past Wednesday and then left the fans and heaters running over the next four days. Tomorrow they arrive to finish off the final sanding and we’ll have smooth walls ready for the painter, who arrives Wednesday!
