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.

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.

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.

Alright. Got switches in and the three way switches for the stairwell light wired.

Bought the pantry/closet door and hung it. Had to buy full size doors and cut them down and build my own frames.

Took me a while to get the first one made and then the others started taking shape a lot quicker before I ran out of daylight. 

Got the first left hand one set in place.  Have to shim and nail tomorrow

Wired up the stairwell pendant light with a LED 100w equivalent bulb

I took off tomorrow so I can go down to the saw mill and see about ordering the mill work for the casita.  Will hopefully finish making the doors and installing the 20 amp fixtures in the kitchen area.

Thanks guys.  Trying to make it match the main house as much as possible.

Will have an apartment fridge, about 24 inches wide and 5 ft tall.  Nice sink and disposer and granite counter tops in the bath and kitchen.  All the trim and cabinets will be rough sawn pine.

The floor will likely be tile planks that look like wood and Im not sure about the shower yet.  I?m not going to match the main house for the shower as I not thrilled with the tile selection in the house.

In the upstairs it will be carpet and bunk beds,  Then a metal spiral staircase
Because its on wood subfloor I plan to install an isolation membrane, which will help it last and flex a bit.  But of course its twice the work.

Finished the electrical. Had to go get 20 amp switches and outlets since the kitchen is all 20 amp branch.

Some numb nuts at Slowes tried to tell me I could use 15 amp outlets and switches.  I just walked away. Wast worth arguing.

Finished making my doors. Most went it without a big challenge. One rough opening was a bit tight. I need to take about 1/16 off the edge of the door.

Then went to a local saw mill and ordered 950 linear feet of rough sawn pine. Did a double take when the guy told me $150 for all of it.   I was like...SOLD!

I may not be that good but at least I?m slow!

Yesterday evening I rented an orbital floor sander and sanded the casita floor to get all the drywall mud and crud off the floor to prepare for tile.

today I built a server for the hide in a 2U rack case. It will be the backbone of the security system and. Misc document storage.

Then I finally installed the matching door to the casita on the house. Worked perfect. Glad the existing frame had an adjustable threshold.
