Still cranking away, an hour here and there.
I finished drywalling all of the office except the wall where the drywall is leaning up against the wall.
I also completed the furnace room where the A/V rack is:
And completed the storage room where the wife likes to put canned goods, forget they are there, then buy more everytime she shops. I found 6 jars of peanut butter... GRRR
5 more sheets left to go, then I tackle the theater!
On a side note... I had a revelation today... My son has inherited devil-like tendencies from my wife. I gave my son another opportunity to work with me today and he lasted about 30 minutes this time (world record). He kept asking me why I measured everything 3 times, blah blah blah.. So I told him I would do the entire room without screwing up and he could learn a thing or 2 about thinking things out.
Well about 3 minutes later as I am measuring where to cut around pipes... the play by play went like the following:
I say "18 to 20 and 24 to 26" (this being the measurements needed).
**I measure a few more times and my kid starts babbling again.
He says "You measure that left to right? That means you are going mark it right to left, right?"
I mumble something like sure, whatever...DAMN
I just realized his rainman like babbling cause me to mark the wrong way and I cut it wrong..
I try to stay calm and not flip out...
I carry it over and put it in a scrap pile when I hear...
"Did you just screw that up, dad?"DAMN
I had to think of something quick..
The only thing I could think of was to mess with his head to distract him.
, have you heard anything at all I have been saying??? It is a template
dude. Why do you have to ask so many rediculous questions?..."*Blink/ blink*
he just looks at me with an expression of attempted deep thinking and says "Oh I knew that, I was just double checking".
Then he just stood around again, 60 seconds later, I turned my back and he wandered off again, so I quickly cut the mistake out and used it in a shorter section of wall
That was a close one
