    Default Back to drywall :)

    Just bought our first house, tore down two walls, and are in the process of installing a brand new kitchen! Yippee!!!

    It's been a crazy couple of weeks, but I am loving every minute of it!

    Just wanted to share!
    Thank you,

    Thanks, Lynne,

    Drywall can be a messy proposition. I'm debating whether or not to finish the drywall in my garage or sub it out. As I get older, I can separate from what I can do (in terms of potential - I can drywall, I can do landscaping, etc.) from what I should do. For instance, I recently hired someone to lay carpet in my basement. I could have rented all the equipment, but what that person did in 2 hours would have taken me all day.

    However, economics do play a factor into it - I couldn't stand paying 100 bucks a month to have my grass mowed when I can spend less than a dollar on gas and do it myself. There are those neighborhoods, though, that cross that suburban line - just expensive enough that 90 percent of the neighborhood does not do their own grass. I guess that could be considered a dividing line economically.

    I guess I'm just rambling too.

    HOpe all is well and that you at least have fun doing it!

    I am having fun - but very tired too!

    We are still installing cabinets and all, but it's coming along nicely!

    uh... well, I work in my pajamas half the time. lol! My husband always laughs cuz I start working on projects like this during my coffee in the morning, and then end up showering at the end of the day. Most pics are of my hair standing up all over the place. So, no pics of me on the web!

    There's some pics of my hubby in the /house directory.

    Perhaps, I will have to post one when were done for you all to figure out which one is me like you did!
    Thank you,
