These pictures are from part of one day when we were putting up dry wall. We wanted to get the laundry room done so we could call back the heating/air people.
Dry wall installation is pretty basic, but I wanted to focus on a couple of odd areas. The first one is our pocket doors.
W bought shorter drywall screws since the pocket door frame is not as big as a stud. I also love the little attachment he bought for the drill. It keeps the screw from going too deep. This is good as I am not the best at using a drill and was nervous about messing up.
Second issue is that some of our water lines run through the wall. Running a screw into one while putting up the dry wall would be a very bad thing. Our plumber had a remedy for that. He installed metal plates over the studs where a water line went through. These are on both sides so drilling into that area is impossible.
The rest is just a matter of cutting out for any light switches or outlets. I helped W a few days and he did more on his own.
Next up will be taping and mudding.
