Hanging Drywall

Hanging Drywall

This past weekend, I cut and hung all of the drywall for my bathroom and utility room project.

Cutting all the drywall was made easier by using a new DeWalt jigsaw that I got for myself as a birthday present. It is cordless, which means no more tangled cords around the big 8×4 sheets of drywall, and it cuts really smoothly with minimal dust.

As I hung the drywall, I also added R15 insulation in all of the walls. This is especially important for the bathroom, since it will share HVAC with the guest house interior, while the utility room will share HVAC with the garage.

Now that the drywall has been hung, my next step is to mud all of the joints and start sanding.
