Thinking about removing a brick or two and blowing in some insulation behind the chimney. What do you guys think?

Finally got that wall out of the way. I have 2 more walls left to drywall. one is in my walk in closet, the other in the kitchen. Kitchen wall will get covered once i figure out what I'm going to do with the plumbing. I'm considereing hiring a pro to replace the whole stack on the second floor with pvc. Might as well do it now while I have the walls opened up instead of having to rip stuff out later.

I have to start getting rid of all the drywall scraps. It's ridiculous how much waste there is from drywalling an apt.

Drywall is 99% done. 2 more sheets where the plumbing in the kitchen will get replaced.

Replaced the casing for the window in the walk in closet.

Used fireblock foam to seal up bigger gaps behindbthe chimney where It meets the drywall.

Installed new dashboard heat covers in small bedroom.

Installed a temporary toilet so i don't have to keep running downstairs and dusting everything up.

Took out loads of garbage.

Should have all the rooms wanted and primed by the end of the week.

Looking good---before you prime,check your work with a bright light--hold it against the sheet rock and you will spot areas that need sanding or more mud before you 'petrify' the mud with the primer---

Drywall scrap ---that is a job in the drywall industry---scrappers--a special crew shows up after the hanger leave and clean out all the 'drops'---

Homeowner that hire out the hanging are often disappointing when they find out the hangers don't pick up anything--

"Not my job,sir."---

I sand with a light in one hand and the sponge in the other. I always make sure to light everything up from multiple angles so i can see every mark. I also make sure to check all the long seams and butt joints with something straight to make sure there are no dips or bulges.

Got a chuckle from your motorcycle pic. With all the work I was doing on my new place last summer, the only ride I was able to get in was riding it from the old house to the new place. In the Pacific NW, the riding season is pretty narrow.

Keep up the good work.
