I did help work on the basement yesterday once my husband got home from work. We added insulation and drywall to one of the bedroom ceilings. Make sure you use 1/2 inch drywall on ceilings - so much lighter!
|My husband had to add studs around the duct work first. The studs are what you'll screw the drywall onto. Obviously you can't screw into the duct work!|
|Fiberglass insulation is super itchy so cover up!|
|Adding a few staples to keep it in place|
|First sheet of drywall going up. Definitely a two person job. Make sure you have two tall ladders.|
We're a long ways out from painting, but Sherwin Williams had their 40% off sale going on so we picked out our paint... and $300 later below are the colors we're using:
Heron Plume for the trim and doors, Popular Gray for the living room and office, and Perfect Greige for the bedroom and bar area. Have any of you used these colors? We'll still need paint for the bathroom and the second bedroom. I'm hoping we'll have some leftover, but we might have to buy more. Yeesh.
