I need a day off from my weekend...

I am totally beat as I write this. I spent all day Saturday putting screws into drywall. I went through two and a half, five pound boxes of sheet-rock screws. Sheesh. It was not mentally difficult, since there's no measuring or cutting involved, but it was tedious and time consuming and it does get tiring after a while. Thankfully I had some help from my Dad, who came over and gave me a hand with it, or it probably would have taken me twice as long to do.

Today I started filling in all the seams with drywall compound and tape. This was also not a particularly difficult job, basically you're just slapping goop in the seam between the boards and then smoothing it down, but it's still tedious and after spending all day doing it, tiring.

My father-in-law came over and helped me, and the two of us got about 1/3 of the walls done... This project seems endless, but that's how it goes when you only have the weekends to work on stuff.

Sometimes it seems hard for me to believe that a contractor can finish a basement in about two weeks, but then again they do have all day to work on it, 5 days a week, along with help from two or three assistants. I suppose being a professional as opposed to an amateur do-it-yourselfer helps a lot too. Heh.

Thankfully I've had a lot of help from my father-in-law. If it were not for his help, this project probably would not even be happening. It's a lot of hard work but I think it will be worth it. It's gonna be a nice room when it's done, someday, I hope.

(Tell me this is not the most exhilarating thing you have ever read on the internets...)
