Slowest Ever Sheetrock Job
Last weekend I showed a picture of one piece of sheetrock I had finally gotten placed in the stairway.
Sunday I got the second piece cut and screwed into the studs. I taped and mudded at night thru the week and after the final sanding yesterday morning got one coat of paint on it.
Will do the second coat of paint today and then maybe work on painting the stairs themselves to get rid of the aweful green. By the way, a piece of cream paint flaked off the exterior of the house. Guess what color of paint was underneath? Yep GREEN. Geeze, these people had a terrible fetish for that color!
Oh, and the grow light stand in the room at the bottom of the stairs - those were brought over by STBXWS last weekend and yesterday I started pepper seeds. In a couple of weeks I will start tomatoes. Because I don't have enough to do - LOL.
That color must have been a fad at some time. You may/may not recall that, not only was the inside of the Vesta garage that awful color; but, when I sanded down the trim in installing new windows, there was that green on the outside trim of the house. Fortunately, most of the house had a brick finish or it would probably have been green too.
You are doing so great. I'm glad that you have the energy, the skill, and the can-do attitude to get it all done. More power to you!

Skill - not so much. But it is my house so I can do as bad of a job as I want. Hey, and my non-professional looking job is a whole heck of a lot better than whoever was doing work on the house before me!
