Progress. Of course, it took seven hours, and my arms and shoulders are so sore I can barely feel them. But we got the main portion of the bathroom ceiling installed yesterday!
Nothing we do ever seems to be easy. We had to cut each piece of sheetrock at a slight angle since the bathroom isn’t quit “true”. Argh! And add to that all the funky light holes everywhere. I’d climb up the ladder to measure, climb back down to cut, then we’d climb up the ladder after cutting a piece of sheetrock to fit to test the fit, climb back down and make adjustments if needed, then we’d climb up the ladder to mark the light opening, climb back down to cut it out, then climb back up and hold it in place while screwing it in. Hence being so sore today.
A little trick if you’re needing to figure out where a light fixture or an electric box needs to go through your sheetrock: mark the edge with lipstick and press the sheetrock to it. It will leave a mark exactly where it needs to be cut.
The more you know!
Sending the Husbear up to the store here in town to buy a tube of lipstick was a different challenge. 😉
Until next time...
