Good to his word, Peter M arrived at 8am Saturday morning and we were straight into it. Had finished all of the drywalling by about 1.00pm. Thanks so much Peter... your efforts are very much appreciated and without the efforts of yourself, Peter the Greek and my Dear Dad, I would still be going for the next few weeks trying to get everything done. Here is the evidence of our efforts!
After washing up my Green Glue dispenser and throwing out the sacrificial bucket (thanks for the tip BIG!) I mopped the floor. Have a couple of sheets of the drywall left. I also have two full buckets of Green Glue left. I expect that I will be able to treat the door with what's left in a couple of the buckets and another bucket for the floor and riser top deck. Next job is to clean up the drywall lift and pack that up. I can safely say that, all things being equal, I will never need that again. I won't miss dry walling. I feel sure that most guys who have done it themeless share my sentiments!
Next job will be comprehensive caulking of the gaps, which shouldn't take too long. Then a quick tape and mud before I seal it up and give it a paint with a dark colour. Going under fabric anyway but I am thinking about sealing it all up to eliminate any further dust in the room. I have a sliver about 3 inches wide that I need to block up on the left side of the door architrave; After chatting to Peter M today about it, I am going to measure up and get the local ply company to rip me some lengths, Green Glue a few thicknesses together and hopefully that will do the trick. It's too small of an area to try to cut drywall correctly. Hope that will be OK.
With the door closed, that room is well and truly sealed up tight. Could hardly hear the stereo playing outside when we closed the door. Should be great when the green glue has cured properly and the door has an extra couple of layers of ply attached.
Really looking forward to getting on with the next steps, but to be honest, going to take a break for this week, have some time with my Son and enjoy the weekend.
