The Drywall is Done!

The drywall was put up on both the downstairs and upstairs.  It took the guys roughly 4 weeks to finish the job which is far longer than the contractor anticipated.  Everything about this house seems to defy time estimates, so that is nothing new.

Now our house is starting to look like a real house.  We just hope that we have successfully fixed all of the leaks!

Hallway, note the vintage built-in telephone stand.  It was moved from another room in the house.

Now we have a lot of cleaning to do. There is drywall dust all over the walls, ceilings, and floors.  After that it will tile and painting.  Hmmm, I wonder which one we will tackle next; tile I guess because the plumber needs the tile done to install the bathroom fixtures.
