OK, time for some pics of the progress!
First, what feels like the never ending pile of drywall. Every time I almost get it all put up, more magically appears in its place (after a sum of money was given to Lowes and it was transported to my house, then lugged into the basement).
I was surprised to find that Lowes was COMPLETELY out of 5/8" drywall due to the horrible flooding we had in the Harrisburg area...but Home Depot still had a LOT of it. Probably has to do with the horrific design of the parking lot at Home Depot...it is built for MINI Coopers. Don't get me wrong, I love my MINI Cooper, but he is not built for hauling supplies from a home improvement store. I was also surprised to find the drywall at Home Depot did not have the little Xs along the length of it every 18 inches apart. They really help keep the screws straight and into the stud. At least I did not need too much 5/8" drywall, for reasons already stated.
Front view - getting closer to being done!
I have to put in boards all around yet, so there is something for the drywall to be screwed into, since the ceiling is lower than the top boards of the wall. It is starting to feel like a real room, and I am rapidly running out of GreenGlue and Acoustic Sealant - which is a good thing, as it means I am getting closer to completion.
One word of advice, LABEL THE WIRING AS YOU RUN EACH OF THEM!!! I forgot to do so and only have one labeled. I am going to short the ends of each cable and use my Fluke to find which them so I can label them now. Would have been simpler had I done it beforehand.
