Yeah, its coming along, nicely, but it'll slow up again I'm sure when it comes to spending the cash for the equipment. Decisions, decisions. I miss Visio, but Paint does the job in a pinch.
I'm going to price out the mud. I've done it and I probably will do it, but going to get some quotes. I don't mind the mud,. its the dust. I've managed to keep the butt joints to a minimum and plan on crown everywhere, so we'll see how much the mud will cost me. If they don't have the dustless sanders, I'll probably do it myself and rent one. I already have stilts from the last basement drywall job and that'll help big time.
I have not posted pictures of GOM. Still working on my color scheme. I just ordered some samples from Guilford, so waiting on those.
The drawing is not to scale. I think it'll work our fine though based on the testing I've done. If you look at the pictures I've posted of the soffit with the lights on you can see only one small section and thats because I just laid it up there. It still has the "bends" from the roll (bought 150 feet) and is not pushed back in the corner really. Also, that picture was taken from eye level (obviously) and I'm 6'4", so there are not many people that will see it any higher! I also used the frosted white light versus the clear to give it a softer look.
Congrats on your completion. Looks great.
