Here lie the souls of 1000 footfalls..
You might be thinking, 'What a wuss, complaining about putting put a few pieces of drywall between the joists.'
What is not obvious is that the sheets of drywall cannot get past those electrical cables in one piece. They are scored and snapped in order to wiggle through. So I'm balancing a loose 30lb floppy sandwich of drywall, green glue and peanut butter that is falling apart, high overhead with shifting centers of gravity, and then trying to attach the mess with screws and drive them in with one hand, while holding the boards up with the other hand..
Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.
At least that was the idea with the shower caddy. It failed miserably, unable to support the weight. What made all the difference was laying a piece of two-by-eight on the ground, which gave me the extra 1.5 inches of reach that made all the difference.
Sandwich making station. One thing most of us who've laid tile in bathrooms know, is to regularly lift up one tile to check thinset coverage. I did that for the green glue. Is there a case for trowelling? Hmm..

This cast iron radiator has thrown a wrench in the works. Initially I chose to work around it then dress it up sometime after the build. Now I see that ideally it needs to be replaced. The iron pipe also needs to be switched for copper. There is no way I'm touching the heating system in this bombosomethingorother cyclone that is hammering the North East at the moment. The exposed basement has also driven heating bills up. Another hidden cost to the project..
