HABEMUS WALLS! In the kitchen! Real walls!
After two+ months of staring at the studs, of securing furring strips, of updating electrical and plumbing, of patching and refinishing floors — after learning so much and tackling so many steps in this seemingly endless process — we finally have one more of those essential house ingredients. Walls, y’all.
Still no ceiling, mind you. But two for three ain’t bad.
I will note that somewhere on the internet I read that a pair of pros can usually put up drywall in a 10′ x 15′ room in “about an hour.” AN HOUR? How about FOUR DAYS?!
That’s how long it took us, in any case.
Also, there’s a LOT of mudding, taping, and sanding in our very near future. But with the drywall up, the end is finally in sight. We’ve even ordered our cabinets!
It’s suddenly a brave new world up in this bungalow…
Because… walls! Who would have thought they’d be so exciting!
