So, what happened yesterday to boost my spirits? Jason Austin, aka Austin Drywall, arrived here to begin hanging the drywall. He wasn't originally scheduled to be here until Thursday. But in order to help meet my schedule he worked here last evening for 4 or 5 hours. In that time he completed hanging all the "green board" [water resistant drywall] in the bathroom of the addition. Lots of fitting was required around plumbing, electrical, exhaust fan and heating stuff in a small space. But before he left that room was hung.
|The first sheets of drywall went on the ceiling|
|Jason is installing the last ceiling piece.|
He had to cut out for the exhaust fan on the previous one.
|Here Jason is fastening the top board on the bath's east wall.|
On this sheet he made cuts for the window and the wire for the vanity light.
|He's installing the last of the bathroom "green board."|
Where you can still see studs and insulation the tile contractor will be
putting up cement board in the shower area.

It's nice to have a wall in place. Even if only on one side.
