I have put up the drywall on one side of each wall I am building.

The first one is by the stairs, which divides the workshop from the retail area. I showed how I framed the walls in a previous post.

Here is the drywall up but not taped yet.

And here it is from the workshop side:

The other wall is to separate the workshop from the small washroom which I previously framed.

Actually I decided I would remove the drywall to the right of this spot.  I need to try and deaden the loud sounds that come from a dust collector which will sit in my washroom.  (I'll post more about this in future posts, but it includes a thick insulation between the walls, so I need to get between the studs for that.)

Here's the view from the washroom.  The taps you see are the plumbing for a washing machine, which I thought I would leave for future use if this is turned back into a house.

Now to sound proof and then tape and mud the drywall...

  5. Julie, thanks for sharing your FB page at the Vintage Inspiration Party. I'm not sure if you realize it, but it doesn't look like it's a public business page, so there is no "like" button o people can like your page.

  6. Julie, I'm so impressed you did the drywall all by yourself!
