Drywall, Drywall, Drywall. Up and down , up and down. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It is all most done. However these pooch outs were and remain a pain in the butt.

I decided that if I wanted some meat behind the drywall to inset plywood with nailers set back enough to allow for the extra thickness. The cavities were filled with paper backed roll insulation before they were closed up.

Here is a shot of the reinforced surface...Image

Some other boring shots of drywall .....

My $10 yard sale cabinet hung on the wall to get it out of the way.

This is the wall I hope the prints will all fit on!

A few small patches yet to be finished around the AC unit

The twin windows ready for trim as soon as painting is finished.

Rescued a small station cart from a friends scrap steel pile ( for free ).... This is the best picture I could find on the net. It is just like this one but the wood on my new find is gone... gone...gone. I will need a gallon of penetrating oil and about 28 feet of 2x10 or such for a new top to get it back in shape.
