Here is a shot looking from the live room into the air lock (hallway!). The door to the left is the entrance to the control room, the door to the right is the entrance to the iso room.

Here is the rented drywall lift, used to get the heavy 5/8" sheets up to the ceiling. Best invention ever invented!!! Absolutely essential to the process!!!

Here you can see the first sheet up on the ceiling of the CR. First sheet hung on the resilient channel.

More random shots looking in from the live room. Once again, the CR to the left, and the iso room to the right.

And finally, a shot from the iso room, through the air lock, and into the control room.

The torture that is drywall resumes today! (Did I mention that I hate drywall???) The rented drywall lift is due back tomorrow morning, so I want to make sure that I finish the ceiling layer before it goes back.

Then comes the more relaxing caulk, mud and tape...

But then!!! ARGGGG!!! Back to "drywall hell" again for the second layer of 5/8"!!!

At least it is starting to look like rooms for a change, even if it feels like we are creeping along at a snail's pace.

Thanks John!

We finished the (first layer of) drywall last night at midnight after a long 3-day holiday weekend's worth of work. My body feels it! I am not as young as I used to be!!!

Did I mention yet that "I hate drywall"?

I have 2 spots where the drywall junctions are not what I would consider good enough to caulk or mud, so I am going to have to go back and either repair or replace those 2 pieces. Arrrgggg! It never ends!

Tonight, I am going to tidy up a bit in preparation for the caulk, tape and mudding job that is coming. Should be a "piece of cake" compared to hanging drywall. I actually have quite a bit of experience (homeowner level) with drywall repair after remodeling most of my home. Lots of mud work followed by lots of sanding!

I'll try to get some more updated pics tonight after my clean-up job.

We are so NOT looking forward to the second layer of drywall... <groan!>

Hey Tom. Thanks for the comments.

Unfortunately, still only one layer of drywall... :( The second layer won't start until we finish caulking, mudding and taping the first layer. Soon however....

Yes, I am on the Samp board, but I have given up for the time being on using Samplitude... It does not like my Lynx AES-16 card, and I am too wrapped up in building at the moment to spend much time trouble-shooting a new piece of software.
