It's time to check in again on the living and dining room remodel. As of our last progress report, we had removed all the lathe and plaster and removed the wall between the two rooms. The next step was insulating the exterior walls; the house previously had no insulation.
Part of getting ready to hang sheet rock involved relocating some wires and replacing some old electrical boxes.
You can see the pup was anxious to help.
On Saturday, my parents showed up bright and early to begin hanging the new drywall. When my dad shows up, you can expect progress to be made. Fourteen sheets of drywall were hung in less than 12 hours.
The next steps over the next few weeks:
- New windows installed tomorrow
- Frame the kitchen doorway
- Install our arched doorway
- Hang dry wall on the last wall
- Tape, mud and sand the walls
