Kinda a wood working project… Working on a new bedroom.

Doing everything myself…. finishing the drywall is a bit of a pain.. but its a learning experiance.

But when I get done with the room, it will be time to head back to the shop, will need a new beroom suite.

I share your opinion about drywall. I had rather run plumbing than finish out drywall. I can do it but it is not one of my favorites. The room is coming along well. It won’t be long before your are ready for paint and trim work.

You must have some interesting building codes where you are, if they let you build rooms into shipping containers
