This week's work....took a surprisingly long time to get the soffits sorted, with the HVAC supplies and returns lined and boxed in. I also put the AngelStep underlay down (its a HD polyester on the bottom with some sort of visco-elastic membrane on top.....its darn heavy).





AngelStep detail:



Main AC Supply Box (this will have a front put on it)



Soffit detail - these will be filled with insulation and lined with Pegboard (not specified by Erskine Group - another PtG production):



Next up is putting the chipboard floor down.....going to be an ass to get in - I think I'll just have to chop it up and but joint/glue it

2440mm for the ceiling and 310mm for the soffits.

This week's effort. The floor is down and I had some time to line some of the soffits with pegboard





Floor is 10mm off the wall, gap filled with Green Glue's sealant



This is what I used on the floor (has good damping properties too)



Here is some of the soffit lined:

And you are miles ahead of me... After 23 years working on the same pile of bricks, I think nothing of doing nothing for 1 or 2 months (or 6) and not even thinking about the nightmarish rain barrel size To Do List repository.

So are us fat ass north americans the only ones who use 4' x 8' (120 mm x 240 mm) panels or bigger all the time? Nightlord is always using "handy panels" as well. For DW we are always trying to minimize joints; I think we can order up to 16' (480 mm) long. If a truck can't handle 120mm standing up or lying down and at least 300 mm long it isn't worth buying. Unfortunately there is that 14l/100km thing for a Ford E250.

It sucks that you are this close to being done and may have to move. I finished my last place the night before the listing came out. We do all of this work so someone else can enjoy it...unless there were mistakes that you would prefer to get away from...

Good luck from up top.

Thanks for stopping by. All of the ply and dry wall ("gyprock" here) was 4x8. The floor sheets here come in 900 x 3600 or 900 x 1800. I couldn't get the 3600's into the room because of doors/hallways etc
