Drywall

Yesterday was a big day for us.

As you can probably tell from the title of this post, we got drywall yesterday.

This picture below is a preview of what we had done prior to putting drywall up.

Wiring, finishing up some insulation and getting some network cables run through the two rooms.

We enlisted a couple of people to help Mr. Newman in getting the drywall up. Mr. Newman’s dad, a couple of friends of Mr. Newman, Mr. R and Mr. K helped out as well.

Since Papa Newman was helping out Mama Newman came along to help me out wrangling the kids and preparing food, among other things :).

They only got parts of both of the rooms done. Just a couple of the walls that either had a window or a closet where a full sheet wouldn’t have worked to put up.

It’ll be a work in progress but we’re moving along. Mr. Newman may have to ask for some more help from friends on weekends or after work to keep plugging away at it.

I’ll provide treats!

The next step I suppose would be to mud and tape. So if anyone can recommend someone to help us out with the mudding and taping that would be awesome! Reasonably priced of course!

A big thank you goes out to Mama and Papa Newman, Mr. R and Mr. K for helping yesterday getting the drywall in the house and up. And anyone else who helps out Mr. Newman and I in the future! We truly appreciate all the help we can get!
