I am learnig so much. Good discussion on preping for dry wall coverage. Have to screw in wood strips that held up accustic tile with 2 1/2" shank dry wall screws to make sure wood strips are attached really really well to joists. A lot of over head driving to acpmplish. Also other great advise to achive smooth dry wall instalation. It will be beautiful !

Focused on flooring in kitchen and bathroom today. KE RRY came to put in beams and posts to secure foundation and Lift it. I Count my blessings because he is willing and knowledgeable to help with this tremendous task. Walking upstairs I could feel this Sturdy difference. I will include some pictures. it's amazing .it will take many months to complete the process including digging and pouring foundations for each post.
KE RRY helped me move my beloved chopsaw Into 610 and I immediately began to put shelves in a deep closet to store tools and organize. Using my newly reclaimed lumber.
Barb H stopped by and pulled nails from studs. She agreed to be a handy assistant to do tasks That will be so appreciated and help get things done. I plan to move in mid March, really I do. Went Home at 10:30. A Sunday well spent, happy and tired.
