Got my drywall to a point I thought I’d show some pictures.
I did the first layer of the ceilings and my soffit in OSB. I know some people say it’s not necessary and harder to work with. To them, I say, you are probably right about the need and definitely right about the ease, but I’ll feel more comfortable putting up my soffit system knowing I have something solid to screw into everywhere I want.
My total build out will use about 68 sheets of drywall and 20 sheets of OSB.
I’ve gotten about 16 sheets of the OSB up and about 23 sheets of the drywall done at this point. I’ve been averaging about 2.5 sheets of material a day since my Lowe’s delivery. This includes carrying, cutting, mounting, caulking, and all that fun stuff.
I feel like I should start speeding up, because the first 2ish weeks, everyday I would run into something I needed to get done before I put up material. Like build a wire box, run LV wires, Finish the soffit, remove the old lights, Fix a mistake in the framing, finish insulation , etc. That is mostly behind me now, except the back left corner, so hopefully I can up my average!
I did my first green glue layer on the bottom side of the soffit and the right wall up to 8 feet. The bucket and applicator that came with it was surprisingly easy to work with.
I also built the first section of my stage out of 2x12s and converted it into a storage rack on one side of my room to hold all my tools and other stuff I’m using
