The Grand Remodel: The Construction Phase, weeks 11 and 12

The past two weeks comprised the “hurry up and wait” period of renovation, since the sheetrock, taping and plaster for texture took several days for each layer to dry before applying the next. But it was finally done.

Panels of sheetrock screwed into the studs (rough drywall):

Finally, texture via plaster goop. It’s yellowish beige when wet, turning to creamy white when dry.

ahhh, texture

Also, while it might not sound terribly exciting, the exterior new (and torn) bits got their first layer of stucco.

Once again, you may see more photographs at the gallery. There are two pages of albums for this project, so here’s a link to weeks 11 and 12.
