First thing was the removal of baseboards and paneling.
blemishes on the floor.
It was later than it should have been but we got the paper and put it down.
Putting in on top of the CRV or their Subaru was not an option but Home Depot had a truck we rented for an hour.
We picked out some sheets that were not damaged and moved them from the stack to the carts in the store.
We picked up some drywall supplies including a 3 gallon bucket of joint compound (who needs 3 gallons? - we are only doing one room!)
[We do! As it turned out we used almost all of it. Hard to imagine, but the goal is to have zero seams in the walls or spots where one can see where some taping occurred. To do that, it takes 2 or 3 or 4 sessions of filling, sanding, smoothing, filling, sanding, smoothing (with a wet washcloth.)].
Once we got the drywall and supplies through checkout, I went and got the Home Depot truck we rented for an hour and then loaded them onto the back. A passerby was nice enough to help load the 12 sheets. But we couldn't take him home so the unloading was left up to us.
We parked near the curb and figured out a method to get them off the truck one at a time.
12 trips later, we got it all inside!
I could not have done it with out this little guy.
We stacked it neatly against a wall and then took the truck back in record time. I only had to rent the truck for an hour so it was very reasonable.
After we took the truck back we got ready to hang the new dry wall. We'll show that next post.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
