I wish I had more progress to share after this three day weekend, but it's something...

Looks pretty good to me, for a long weekend! Not bad at all.

The past several weeks have been intense, not studio related though. I did manage to finish OSB installation on the studio side and sealed all of the gaps so it is now ready for drywall. There's a two ton stack of drywall on the porch and I will be working on that this afternoon with my friend Jason.

But here is the other news. We had two retired racing Greyhounds, one 12 years old and then other six. Our elder greyhound got diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) and we had to euthanize her a few days later. :cry:

Just three weeks later, my wife and I drove over 770 miles (1239 kilometers) to Flagstaff, Arizona, to meet a lady who needed to re-home two beautiful 9 month old Borzoi puppies. We brought them both home with us, kept the female, and gave the male to our friend who also euthanized his greyhound two days before we did ours.

Behold, our precious doggos.

Nice to see you back in action Keith and to log into the forum for the 1st time in a few years :)

I tried to log in when I when after we messaged while I was at Alameda but the board kept kicking me out.

Hopefully, my SAC gig will go thru next year and I will see and get to experience Sharwards's Partial Garage Conversion, in person.

Nothing too exciting to report other than to say I have resumed hanging drywall and am almost done with the three layers of ceiling. Each layer is is smaller than the one above it so that the wall layers will interleave the way they are supposed to. I decided to do all three ceiling layers before doing walls because the drywall hoist is a nuisance and takes up a lot of room and I'd like to get rid of it sooner rather than later. I'll post photos when the ceiling drywall is done later this week. I also ordered two more cases of Green Glue which will arrive tomorrow. I think I will ultimately use 7 cases or 84 tubes of the stuff altogether, well over a thousand dollars' worth.

How come there's no LIKE button on here? :blah: :blah: :blah: BUT I do enjoy the old phpBB boards. It seems like in general new boards, and Social Media does not go into the detail that so many phpBB board users used to go into a decade out.

Facebook invented the "Like" button, and this forum and my build is older than Facebook! The digital camera I used to use back in 2005 was 1.3 megapixels!

Anyway, I finished hanging ceiling drywall today and I sold the drywall hoist on craigslist or exactly what I paid for it ($100).

I surprised myself by discovering my ceiling will be a couple of inches higher than I recalled. As a result, my first two wall layers of drywall will be taller than the nine foot long boards stacked on my porch. That means more work which bums me out, but I will keep marching forward.

Still plugging away! I gotta get the third layer of drywall on the interior hung (not including tape and mud) before November 13 so I can get my inspection done before my permit expires again. I'm ⅔ done with Layer #2 on walls (ceiling has 3 layers already). I have two weekends between now and then so it's crunch time. I'm slow but cautious...

Guess who passed his drywall fastening inspection today? This guy! One day before my permit was due to expire.

Here's a short video if you'd like to see what it looks like with all the three layers of drywall panels installed, plus my commentary on the inspection process that was rather lame.

It's so close now! Next step: tape and mud!

Tape and mud is done. Next stop: sanding, followed by texture, followed by paint!

It occurred to me today that everything I am now doing is directly tied to aesthetics. That's a pretty awesome feeling.

Some of my lighting arrived and I'm really looking forward to hooking those up soon.

Sanding is done, so in anticipation of having texture done this week, I did a little shopping... 8)

The finish line is so close, I can smell it from here. Weird how it smells like paint.
