This past weekend Jess and I spent most of our free time hanging Sheetrock. This is a great step because the room is finaly starting to look like its getting close to being finished. Of course this also means that I’ll soon be doing lots of taping, sanding, and spackling, which is the least fun part of the whole process. We got almost all of the walls done, and would have been able to finish, except we ended up being one sheet short of drywall. Although I had orginaly bought what I thought was five sheets extra, that was before our plans included the skylights, which ended up using three sheets each. I’ve used 1/2″ drywall for the whole room, attachign it to the studs with 1-5/8″ drywall screws. I started using just a cordless drill but after a short time I bought a Bosch drywall gun. Certainly one of the more useful tools I’ve bought recently, it makes sinking the screws to the perfect depth a cake-walk.
