More Drywall

The end of drywalling the guest room is in sight! Last weekend we focused on putting up the last two pieces of sheetrock and mudding. We watched a how-to video Home Depot put out and let me just say that they make it look so much easier than it is. The first two pieces of tape I put up ended up having air bubbles in them so we'll need to cut those out before we can put then next layer on. Getting the mud smooth is an art form.

Luckily for us Luke dropped by on Sunday and made quick work of finishing the first layer of mud in the entire room. He said he hadn't mudded in years, but it seemed to come right back to him and is flew through all the remaining seems on the walls then the ceiling. I eventually got the hang of it too so I handled the corners. I think they turned out pretty well!

Next weekend we're hoping to finish the mudding which means we'll be able to paint, and if we manage our time very well we might even get to start laying the floor...
