When we decided to insulate and drywall our garage said I knew it wouldn’t be easy (but secretly I was thinking it would be).
I mean what was there to do?
1. Put everything in the crawlspace/away from the walls (check!)
2. Put up insulation (check!)
3. Put up drywall (check!)
4. Mud drywall (and here is where I am hung up).
5. Sand mud (hard to sand what isn’t there yet).
This whole “mudding” thing is really a lot harder than I thought. So far I’ve done 3 seams and attempted 3 feet of a corner. It did not go well and I’ve been told about a “corner tool” which I will hopefully soon be borrowing from a friend because I was told my other option was “patience and anal retentiveness” and patience is just not my strong suit. Especially when it comes to a project that I just want to be over already!
Also – because I know you’re all very interested in the new neighbor saga – I heard him come home last night and peaked out the window to watch him park (no, I am not a stalker, just a very annoyed neighbor). He pulled up past his driveway (good!) then turned on his reverse lights (better! (because his garage door was open)) and then he backed his Astro-Van (not small) until it was once again in front of his driveway (bad!) and across from mine (worse!). This morning it took another 5 point turn for Nate to get out of the driveway.
I considered running outside last night to ask him to move his car since there were 0 cars in his empty garage, 0 cars in his empty driveway, and 2 cars on the street, but then I would be that crazy lady across that street who has nothing better to do than watch out the window waiting for him to screw up. Which totally I’m not. Obviously.
