Well the walls, or where I thought I needed / wanted them are up, and painted. I did not sheath all the walls because I have become accustomed to having the space in the stud bays. I admittedly half-a**ed some of this, I have a project coming up really soon and I need to have all this stuff done. The ceilings where just a terrible idea that nobody could talk me out of. I used white hardboard paneling, just because I hate painting so much. Its too thin, and flimsy so its hard to get flat across the joists, you might notice in some of the pictures. I highly don’t recommend it. I doubt I will do anything about it, this will not be the last place I live so I will chalk this up to a learning experience. Also you can see the air cleaner I made, that I will do another blog for. I also got my wynn filter in and put that on, still need to build my thein separator. And slapped together a small cabinet for my finishes, and glue etc. I also added 4 new light fixtures, which made it soooooooooo much brighter, overall I am satisfied with the upgrades.
