Thank god it's over

The sheet rock is complete! The ceilings are up and the house is beginning to look less and less like a construction zone. I will never sheet rock another ceiling again (well atleast not for a very long time).

My brother in-law, Jim, came over to help us begin the mudding process. Well, the ceiling is pretty uneven; it's going to be a big job. We decided that it's in our best interest to bid this out. To be honest, I'm done working on the ceiling. I had been contemplating suicide up until this was thrown out there (not seriously of course). So this is good news. "Wait a minute... How could spending more money be good news?", you ask. I have someone going out there tomorrow to begin mudding for $20/ hour. This typically costs between $30- $50/ hour. Not only is it CHEAP, he will have it complete by Saturday (out move-in date).

Ahh, the connections I have through work. Andy, the VP of operation of the company I work for, has helped me out left and right. He's got the hook ups and since we have some large contracts with these companies I reap the benefits. I don't know what I would do with out the help. I'd be poor. Guess who forgot their camera this weekend? I'll grab it and hopefully take some pictures tonight. Stay tuned!

Pictures of the ceilings sheet rocked, a scary game piece that is getting burned, and some Christmas cards that fell out of the ceiling.

I can't even imagine how much work that was. Looks pretty professional to me... even if it's uneven! Good luck with the next steps.
