Hey there Dude!

It looks GREAT!

You're an inspiration, as always. And I know it ain't gonna crash down, either (ok, like the previous owner's handiwork).

Well done, Tom!

Thanks for taking the time to post back!

As for me, I haven't tackled any remodeling in quite a while. Of course it's still winter. And, ohhh, I will use any excuse....

Regards,

Once again, you're an inspiration to those among us that are kind of sloooooow to get a job done! I put myself way up on that list!

Great drywall job! I am especially impressed by the fact that you got the cutouts in the right places. Whenever I do ceiling work, I always seem to mis-measure (at least once)--which, of course, would give me a cutout in just the right place if I were installing the drywall UPSIDE DOWN :)

Thanks for posting, Tom!

thanks K. as i said in my cellar posts, if it doesn't disrupt family life, i can milk a job as well as the next guy, but due to the fact my son's belongings are 'strewn about' the rest of the house, i had to act fast [the wife is sick of the whole house looking destroyed, and i don't blame her, his stuff is everywhere], so a few weekends and some after-work 'thrash sessions' and it's almost done [smile], now it's the darn carpet waiting [ordered black, much like the sideways paneling, it sounds nuts, but it's a small room so i figure it'll make the floor dissappear and make the room seem bigger].

we also bought a cheap put together armoir to put in the 'nook' to the left of the chimney, it's a perfect fit, and the finish matches the walls/trim perfectly!

c'mon carpet!

anyway, i guess this concludes my adventure with the cieling, and thanks for viewing, it's nice to share this stuff with someone who's been down the same road before.

now maybe i can get back to the cellar drainage and complete that project.........
