Drywall? check.

And so the drywall is hung, mudded, and sanded. They did a very good job although we'll have him in today to fix a few spots that need additional attention. And they managed to cover one of the hall light sockets. Fortunately I noticed that it looked off balance with just one socket in the long hall.

Mudded but not yet sanded
We spent hours yesterday cleaning up drywall dust. They'd done a vac and sweep of the area but it just seems to take several attempts to get rid of it all. Chris swept the ceilings and walls to knock down the superfine stuff clinging there and I used the shop vac around all windows, switches, outlets, and walls. Had to keep banging out the filter so I didn't end up just shooting the stuff right back into the room. Ugh! What a mess!

Our personal dust bowl
Heading back up today to clean some more and to take a load of the boxes I packed over the weekend. Then we'll start priming the walls. Hope to have that done in a couple days so that we can start moving stuff into the house instead of just putting it on the Bridge.

    Thumbs up on your stubby wood burner, and drywall dust is the worst!
