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.
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).
