Had a fun GG & DD day yesterday. Started at 8:00am and got last layer finished around 6:00pm. All things considered, and after a few panicked phone calls to Ted White, it went fairly smoothly.
A few revelations:
1. Green glue sticks to arm hair. It sticks to faces. It sticks to Hispanic workers. It sticks to tools. It sticks to shoes. It then sticks to anything those shoes walk on (like house carpet). You get the point.
2. Green glue smells good, but it does not taste good.
3. On the first 5 or so sheets of drywall, you try to oh-so-carefully follow the "S" pattern described in the instructions. The subsequent sheets you say screw it and it just becomes a "sling it on there" in graffiti fashion process.
4. Drywall dust sucks -- big time.
Here are some photos of the progress. You may be thinking to yourself that my camera lens was really dirty, but no, that is drywall dust in the air. It now resides in my lungs.
Here are the 1 & 1/4" and 2" screws. Thanks Bigmouth!
Here is my GG workstation:

Second layer going up on ceiling:
Next step is to seal the corners with caulk and lay down mats and 3/4" OSB flooring. Then, seal between the floor and walls. That is my project for this weekend.
