Yesterday we started hanging drywall. Some family came down from Wausau to help with the grunt work of lifting and holding, and our friend Jim helped direct us where to lift and hold specifically.
Ken, Greg, Ruth and Jim all helped make this day a lot more fun than lugging hundred pound sheets of drywall up a flight of stairs should be. There were plenty of laughs, an abundance of “that’s what she said” jokes, and musings on the need to insulate bathroom walls. Plus we were able to get both of the ceilings in the bedrooms and walls in the kitchen and office area done. We were all tired by the end of the day, and we still have more to do, but it was a great day with some of our favorite people, and that makes some sore muscles worthwhile.
