Drywall started

The drywall work started--the big sheets are up, and are vigorously outgassing. I think I'll leave the windows open tonight...

There are lots of smaller holes yet to be patched (light fixture holes, old switch and outlet locations, etc.), the metal edges have to go on the outside corners, and then mudding, taping, and sanding.

The place is a mess, and it will get worse, I'm sure. Dust and debris piles in the construction area, lots of drywall nails on the floor, stuff like that. Someone did roughly sweep a path through the middle for me, which I swept again before I started trekking back and forth this evening. I'm keeping the cats out, much to their disgust--they want to investigate.

I put up a sequence of pictures of the remodeling that I'll try to add to as things go on.

That *is* progress! Are you able to *breathe* at night with the drywall dust, etc.?

So far the dust isn't bad, and the smell...well, I got used to it. When they actually start sanding the dust problem will get a lot worse, though I've done what I can with towels under doors, plastic sheets over stuff, etc. to keep the dust out of my living space.

If I can't take it, there's always the sofa bed next door.

Wow, I can't wait to see it when it's done!

You'll have to host a filk. :)

Let the record show, someone besides me said it first. Of course, it'll also show me enthusiastically seconding the motion. ;)

Ooooh, "outgassing"!

*swoon*

A Rocket Scientist *has* to love someone who uses "outgassing" as ordinary vocabulary!
