Sheetrock

Sheetrock time!  The long-awaited day has arrived.  Having passed our mechanical and structural inspections, we are now free to cover up the walls.  This will allow us to get started with finish work – wood trim, cabinetry, paint, and tile.  And it will provide a better sense of what the place is going to look like when it is done.

Three days later…transformation in progress!  They started with the interior walls, which are easier to attach sheetrock to, being wood-frame as opposed to the solid-brick exterior walls.

The purple boards, for use on the exterior walls, are moisture-resistant.  The ones used on the exterior walls in the master bedroom also incorporate extra soundproofing against train noise (the Union Pacific freight line runs less than a block away).
