We *heart* dry wall.

Three 16 hour days, 80 sheets of dry wall, lots of coffee and take-out and we are done. We have walls!
It was a lot of work and took a lot of patience, but it was also a lot of fun. It was great to be working on the house with the hubby again, but definitely harder with 3 little ones under our feet though. Luckily my mom took our kiddo’s for a whole day and we were able to get the entire upstairs and the ceilings downstairs done. The two other days we did what we could to keep them out of trouble while we kept working. All I have to say is that I’m glad its done and hope that we never have to hang that much dry wall again!

Ironically, our kitchen was featured this weekend over on Remodelaholic. Gosh, just looking at those pictures again make me realize how much we have done…yet have so much more to go!

  14. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to swap techniques with others, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  15. In many instances, a similar dirt and bacteria you worked to take out will simply re-adhere to
    a different area. Then the cleaning solution is applied and
    quite often stains might be seen lifting off in the carpet before
    your very eyes. Usually, a top end steam vacuum comes
    equipped with stainless, brass, and nylon brushes. These machines are fitted with special nicotine gum removing brushes, and dealers offer nicotine gum dissolving chemicals
    while using machines. For complete sanitization capabilities, opt for steam
    cleaners with specialized anti-bacterial technologies.
