Our Dream House


Ok this was totally crazy! I had to upload the pictures to my facebook page then upload them to photobucket then move them to the file.
At least I finally figured it out so I can show you guys how much more is done.



Deep sink tile

How come you put the sheetrock on the walls first?

Our Dream House


We have junction boxes in the ceiling so we need to access them. So hubby has designed a removable ceiling set up. He found a metal panel that he is cutting into squares and is making wood supports to hold it up. The dry run he did looked totally awesome.
I still have to put the Roxel in the pony wall too.

Our Dream House


Hubby got the TV room/ guest room done and has started on the hallway.
We picked up 42 more sheets of sheet rock today.
Priced out cedar shingles for the gable ends. Talked to the guy about using linseed oil on them to protect them. He suggested mixing in a little paint thinner.
Asked the clerk about fiberglass faced sheet rock. He had not heard about it but when I mentioned the manufacturer he said he could look it up and get it for me. Need to get the backerboard for the bathroom floors upstairs.

Getting closer every week.

Ok I admit I am really sick of taping and mudding at this point!
Got the storage area under the stairs done. Got over half the rec room done, have to move a bunch of stuff to finish it,
Got over half the craft room done before I said enough for the day.

I can't tell but from the pictures it looks like your switches and outlets were put in before the sheetrock and kind of looks like the tabs that sit on the outside of the rock are behind it.

They look fine to me, the same as my own and we havent had any issues with them. Then again i didnt use 1/2" sheetrock either. Hope you dont have to change all of them, thats a pain!

Hubby did put them in first bova80. He extended out the boxes 1/2" for the sheet rock.

Thanks TrailerParadise! Just wishing it was done. I do not do electricity! Just got shocked this weekend by a shorted out hot wire. Not a pleasant experience.

Ok I am so sick of the mudding and taping I got a bid from a friend and he is going to come out and do it when all the rest of the sheet rock is hung.

ETA Just wondering about ready to assemble kitchen cabinets. Anybody use them?

if u know how to use a table saw, you can build your own cabinets just as easily and a heck of a lot cheaper. i built my own, you can see them on the thread in my signature. if you are interested let me know and ill pm you the plans
