Now that the siding is ALMOST finished, John’s next job will be to drywall the entire 2875 sf house. In order to install the sheetrock by himself, he needs a drywall lift.
I searched for one and came across an 11 ft. Ironton Drywall & Panel Hoist on Northern Tool. It has a 150lb capacity and will work perfectly for the big DIY drywall project that will probably take a couple of months to complete.

I contacted Northern Tool and they are generously providing the drywall hoist to us gratuitously. It has been shipped and we’re waiting for its arrival. John can’t wait to try it out. He asked me this morning when it will arrive and I said maybe today or tomorrow.
In the meantime, we’ve had several days of rain. Once the sun comes back out, the siding will resume. The front of the house will be next along with building a small roof for the bay window.
We’re also waiting for the soffit order to arrive. Next, we have to think about getting gutters!
