9? ceiling downstairs? Like advice in many of Don?s threads (ie, too little, too late)... ya know they make 4.5? tall pieces so you only end up with one seam on those walls? :) Looks good though! Will look even better once it is mudded, textured and painted!

Hope they used screws and not nails on the ceiling pieces. I spent some time last Saturday pulling nails, replacing with screws and repairing about a dozen pops on my ceiling.

Yeah thanks Ryan. Smh
But since I didn?t hang it I?m not sweating the extra seam.

They did use screws on the ceiling.

Looks good, let me know when I should plan my trip south to stay and visit! Maybe I can swing over and pick up Ken too...  :likebutton:

That's alright Shawn, I'll pass. He said that it's a Casita, not a love shack. Maybe Ryan swings that way....?...(although he'd be distracted by all of the sheet rock seams)
Sorry Charles, looks good.

Ok. Swept the debris out and measured for the trim and cabinets. Gonna have the trim rough sawn in pine just like the main house.

Finished pulling cable to the seacan and terminated the pull box and sealed it to the outside.  Made a drip edge out of some 2x2 angle over the door

Need to work on ordering the AC this evening. 

And the mud crew shows up tomorrow am.

Glad I didn't do it, wouldn't look as good or be done!

So I got the PVA primer sealer and broker out the airless sprayer. And man if I didn?t run out of primer mid job and have to make a run into town. But about 8 1/2 gallons later and it?s primed.  I?ll roll the ceiling in the morning and start working on the finish electrical

hard to tell but I rolled the ceiling with good ceiling paint this morning and then started on the electrical. Got all the led lights in the cans and all the duplexes installed.  Just need some 20 amp receptacles and some switches. I was pleased that all my wiring was where I expected it to be and all the receptacles  and fixtures were wired correctly.  All breakers on and nothing tripped or burned down.

Having lights light up is a great mile stone imo.
