Drywall over drywall? And a bonus flooring question!


I thought that too, but then I assumed that kgphoto thought that when I said "breezeway" I meant just an open area that was between my garage and house and maybe not totally protected from the environment.

I finally got some pics off of my camera.

Here's a shot of the door going into the house. I had ripped some of the paneling off to see what was behind it. That began the, "oh boy, now I have to finish this" part of the project.



Here is a shot from the house to the garage door...



And here is a shot after I ripped the paneling off of the house wall, and the drywall off. The pictures don't really do the color justice, it's horrible. There's a legitimate shot that we wouldn't have bought the house if it was that color.



And here's the new door installed. Photo is from the breezeway. The inside is all trimmed, I just need to finish nail it a bit more and touch up some paint...

I guess it is when you use words that don't mean what everyone else thinks it means. Breezeway is one thing, hall is another. If you read closely, I asked if these were exterior walls, not interior and IF that was the case, then drywall would be a problem.

Breezeway

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


A breezeway is an architectural feature similar to a hallway that allows the passage of a breeze between structures to accommodate high winds, allow aeration, or provide aesthetic design variation. Often a breezeway is a simple roof connecting two structures; sometimes it can be much more like a tunnel.


Is that asbestos siding?

Sorry for the confusion! I will henceforth refer to this part of my house as a hallway.

Since my last update, the hallway was gutted to the studs, a vapor barrier was installed (thank God I spent the money on a hammer stapler!!!), 1/2" concrete board was put on the floor, 1/2" sheetrock was put up on walls and ceiling, and I got some mud put over the screw holes and seams. I haven't tackled the corners yet, but I didn't have much energy yesterday.
