We did the fireplace wall early on. Once the volcanic rock was off, the rest went quickly.
Insulation and sheetrock first.
Then a brick wall from floor to cieling.
It set overovernight...
Then the new fake rock was applied.
It was real fake rock.
The insulation really made the place start to feel like a house again.
My friend, Memo and I did the whole house in two days.
The fancy plastic facing eliminated the itching and keeps moisture out.
The new tub arrives.
GWB or sheetrock is even better than insulation to make a guy feel at home.
The cieling is hard! especially by yourself.
Did I use too many screws?
But eventually everything gets done.
Even the hallway.
The licing room was last. The lightwells were a pain.
Over the kitchen.
Over the living room.
Even the garage got a face-lift.
The tapers work magic with the 30 year old walls.
Using a darby to make a flat surface. Actually, I think it was a piece of plywood.
A good week's work.
Level five surface in the lightewells
Greenboard with tape only in the tile areas
