Dry wall in the tower and great room
It's been a while, so I thought I'd post this just to let folks know that we are alive and kicking... and still working on the house. Most days are spent hanging drywall. It is slow going, especially when the dry wall has to be trimmed to fit in spaces between the timbers, or when working from scaffolding 20 to 30 feet in the air. We're getting there though. Although most of the electrical wiring is done, we haven't started on the plumbing, so some of the interior walls will just have to wait. I definitely plan to hire a professional to "mud and tape" the drywall after we finish hanging all of it.
My oldest son's room, located on the second floor of the tower:
A picture from the great room loft - the pink lines are strings that will guide the construction of our chimney (in a year or two?!):
Cool angle of the hammer beam from the second floor balcony. Only the scaffolding betrays the fact that this is not a finished house! (I'm allowed to dream though, aren't I?!)
