I’ve been busy, so I haven’t been in my shop much lately, well that’s not exactly true, but it IS true that I haven’t gotten done what I want to yet.
After scheduling the time to get a rented hoist, then discovering the hoist won’t work for holding drywall up against the studs while I start the screws, I got a helping hand from my lovely bride, who could only go so far with it. I need to get some volunteers to help me out here!
Long story short, we wrestled a quite heavy hunk o sheet rock into place, and then ran the screws in. At this point, I couldn’t care less if the screw heads leave bumps or not. I used the drywall dimpler, but some screw heads are just a shave proud of the sheet rock.
I have been spending some real long overdue quality time though in cleaning up my shop. I have so much more to do, and so little time to work though.
Tonight, assuming LOML doesn’t have other tasks in mind for me, I am planning on spending at least another hour out there just cleaning, straightening, and stashing upstairs the stuff that is out of production and won’t be coming back frequently….
I have one more uninterrupted drywall panel to install, then comes the fun part. I have to cut in around the existing electrical and plumbing. This is going to end up a wall board sawn mess I am sure. But once it is all installed, taped, mudded, and painted, I should be silly happy with the next steps…
Once I am ready to get it back in place, I am planning on mounting up my HF DC side flip style to a plywood mount board, and get the drum directly under the impeller… Then back to mounting things up where I want them, finally!
I am at the stage where I really want to be making progress, but REALLY need help getting there… Good thing the neighbor across the way owes me a few favors…
