The drywall is finally done. I think Hector feels good about the job being done too. It was a long hard battle to get the drywall around all the odd shapes of our house. It took more sheets of drywall than estimated too as well as more joint compound to level. But it does look pretty darned good. We love all the angles of our house. It sure makes the acoustics nice for a home. Even with all the furniture out and all hard surfaces, it doesn’t echo in the house!
We used fans to speed up the dry time on the mud to be ready for the texture the next day.
Here is the small bathroom before texturing. After this photo we finally took out the toilet so that the wall behind could be textured and painted.
The texture is sprayed on by another subcontractor. The compressor and pump were in the truck.
Hector took these pictures for me because my camera was taped into our bedroom!
After texture, Jose and Hector came back to sand what oversprayed on the flat ceiling. Whatever they used for texture it was pretty difficult to sand it off!
And Hector did lots of this sanding from those amazing drywall stilts.
Finally the painter arrived today and spent the first few hours caulking. Then he started spraying the primer. I just noticed the utility room was not primed, but looks like everything else was done.
I thought his pump setup was kind of neat. It is different from paint pumps I have seen in the big box store.
And Ignatio used almost 15 gallons of primer today. Luckily he has some left for the utility room!
Tomorrow he will start the ceilings with flat white. I have five gallons of paint for the ceiling and 10 for the walls. Hope it is enough.
