    Once the other areas are done, I'll have room to finish the shop.

    I'm going to start taping and floating soon. Any tip would be appreciated.
    TIP: Hire someone. I found the cost reasonable and it was ready to paint when the contractor left. No wasted time for rework and it looked great.

    Scott,
    There are so much junk in the way, it'll be hard to get anyone to do it. Furthermore, I live so far out of the way, the guys in my town doesn't want to come out for such a small job.

    Plus, I want to learn how to do it.

    Re: Finishing my downstair area

    Haven't done much lately but just bought my vacuum pump to prepare for the heat pump installation.

    Of course y'all know that is my excuse to get a vacuum pump for the future vacuum press right?

    Right now I'm wondering what delta T I should use for sizing my heat pump.

    A little late for this tip, but never put drywall joints in line with door or window jambs. They will always crack, especially the ones on doors. Notch sheets so that they wrap around and have the joint somewhere in the middle.

    I was typing: "To be honest I knew that but it was so convenient to end the sheets there so I yielded to the temptation. I know I'll pay for those."

    My smart phone now not only does the English autocorrect but also the Vietnamese autocorrect. The end result is often disastrous.

    With the hand injury finally behind me, I'm getting back to this. Got a 14ft panel lift so I can sheet rock the ceiling by myself. It's gonna be something! Pictures soon to follow.
