Four spacklers came back this morning. In 2 1/2 hours they did quite a few butt joints and they also applied mud around the windows and deep sills.
Here’s Bill’s old bedroom (and here is the 1-minute video I took when his hoard was in it). I’m not into ghosts or spirits but I often think I feel Bill’s invisible presence in the house.
This was the first room where John hung drywall. Because this was the first room, there were many butt joints which is something you want to avoid when hanging drywall.
Fortunately, when I wrote a blog post about hanging the drywall, a couple of followers immediately alerted us to the fact that their were too many butt joints. John made sure to avoid that from happening in all the other rooms (as much as he could).
Victor, the spackler, did a great job on the deep window sills. John had to hammer a nail in the corner bead on the left afterwards. This was the one room where he used plastic corner bead rather than metal. Plastic corner bead is installed with spray. After the spackling was done, he noticed a section of the plastic was not adhering to the corner so he nailed it.
This is the linen closet across from Bill’s bedroom entrance. It’s a cute size, 1954-style! John will build shelves (another winter project).
More deep window sills in the dining area…
Painting is on the winter project list and a new front door. I stuffed a rag in the front door hole where Bill had his tiny camera installed.
The door I had bought was returned–I didn’t like the way it looked. I prefer a solid door sans a window.
Looking into the kitchen which will be painted first (white) followed with flooring.
