Ok, ladies. Here's the photo proof of progress
Yep, right back to where I was a month ago
I'm just glad to finally have the correct hat channel so I won't be worried about it when I'm done. I'm the type of person that would obsess over knowing there was something wrong.
Wow, my room is a horrible mess! It's hard to find time to do much of anything down there, and I always hate to spend what little time I have picking up. Fortunately, with the end of the hat channel in site, I'll be able to go through there and get rid of all the scrap channel and take back the leftovers. That will help a lot.
And yes, I'm still planning to do the drywall myself, but I would like to find out what it will cost. If I could get it hung for $1K, and I felt like they would do it right, I'd write the check today. I'm just not sure I'll find anyone to meet either of those criteria, much less both
But it doesn't hurt to check around. To be honest, I'm almost giddy at the prospect of starting the drywall!
