Our Dream House


I was always under the impression ceiling first and walls last, not just for hitting joists easier, but because the wall drywall helps hold the ceiling drywall, as well as getting a more accurate line where they meet, ( not being wavy and looking like.......) well that was my 2 cents worth.

Got the 50 sheets of sheet rock! Hubby started hanging it tonight. He got the Ultra Light 1/2". Got 1 wall covered already! Timed him and it took him 15 minutes to hang 1 sheet.
I'm off on Tuesday so plan to help him get as much of that up as possible.

The guy who is running our duct work got delayed due to several emergency furnance calls. He made it out finally and got around half of it run. He is due back on Wednesday but might be here tomorrow if he is not super busy.

Duct work is done! The humidifier is awesome up there. That furnance really gets the house warm quickly. Yeah I am ready to move in!

Hubby got quite a bit done on the sheet rock.

Thanks BabsHoney! Hubby got the rest of that wall done and is now at the closet and pantry.
I'm laid up with a nasty cold, but plan to go up today and mud the screws in the sheet rock.

Hubby almost has the kitchen fir out completely done. I ordered a pot filler faucet for the kitchen.
Called our local lumber yard where we got the sheet rock to price it out. Was informed they were sold out! Of ALL 1/2" sheet rock. None zip zilch!
Told to call back next week or right before we need it. Asked if I could get my name on at least 25 sheets when the next shipment comes in. He didn't know when the next shipment was going to come in at all. Said to call and he would do the best he can for me.

Picked up a small piece of marble for the top of the kids vaniety. Got to taping the upstairs last night. Got almost the entire kitchen and living room done.

Picked up another blasted cold so I just stayed warm and inside.
Blasted mold in the bedroom window has my system weak. I keep spraying the mold with bleach and scrubbing it but it comes back.

Sorry about your cold. I was wondering about how you fit the sheet rock up to the log walls? The fit looks really good. Did you use a scribe? I would like to see a couple pic's of this procedure. dorf dude...

Bleach doesnt kill some types of mold. Try white vinegar, then wash it with plain water. It worked for me! Mine was inside a wall though, so i finished it by putting Kilz2 primer on it because it protects against mold.

Thanks TP will try that. A new window will cost around $300, that would buy the guest shower.

Scott what the builders did is when they put up the 2x4 framing they cut 1/2" wide notches from the top of the log walls to the bottom. We just slid the sheet rock into the notches and screwed it to the framing.

This pic is the notched one.


DH scribed this one for the kitchen. I hadn't decided on the kitchen floor plan when they did it.

Well to catch everybody up on what has gotten done.
I got the walls taped and the first coat of mud on them. Started sanding them. I run my hand over it to see if I can feel anything like a ridge or a bump.
Hubby has started hanging sheet rock in the basement. Got the rec room and my storage room for all my canning supplies done. Yes we hung a vapor barrier on the walls that are next to the concrete walls.
I got some ceramic tile to go around the wall area around the deep sink.
Got the Nu Heat floor mats for the kids bathroom and our bathroom.
Picked up 40 more sheets so that leaves us just needing to get 75 more and that should finish out the walls except for the bathrooms.

OMG!
Hubby called me today at work to let me know that every single sheet of sheet rock had torn paper on it.
I am floored.
Called the place I got it from and they are going to have a manager call me on Monday.

Picked up 5#'s of sheet rock nails to finish the corner beads.
Trying to keep my good cheer up but it is hard after that call.

Got the new sheet rock. Store delivered it too. Hubby is hanging it now that we are snowed in again. I've been running tape on the upstairs ceiling.
Been trying to get pictures to upload but no luck.
