DCP03296.JPG (148580 bytes)    July 13, 2005 - Wednesday - Sheet rock installation begins in earnest this week.  The ceiling is done first and code dictates a minimum thickness of 5/8" for the sheet rock on the ceiling.  This provides added protection against a fire in the home making its way up into the attic.  This picture is taken from the dining room showing the good progress on the master bedroom and living room ceilings.  Thanks again to Mark Brown for coming out earlier this week to help "hang" sheet rock!

DCP03295.JPG (115133 bytes)    July 13, 2005 - Wednesday - The Panel Lift is a tool worth its weight in gold when installing sheet rock on a ceiling...especially a ceiling over 9 feet high like ours!  We place a sheet of rock on the top supports and then use the crank wheel to raise the platform to the ceiling!  Hopefully who ever invented this tool is a rich person by now!  Street price at this time on a Panel Lift is just over $600 or nearly every good rental shop has one.  We got our from Dick and the boys over at D&K Rental in Sequim.

DCP03302.JPG (95801 bytes)    July 13, 2005 - Wednesday - This picture shows the Panel Lift in operation raising a piece of sheet rock into place in the dining area.  Once the sheet is tight up against the trusses and in the proper position, we screws the sheet to the trusses before letting the Panel Lift down.  Notice also the Panel Lift is on wheels so it can be moved around very easily!

DCP03303.JPG (135138 bytes)    July 15, 2005 - Friday - Ceiling sheet rock continues and this shot shows the kitchen and bar area nearly complete.

DCP03304.JPG (104359 bytes)    July 15, 2005 - Friday - This is a view of sheet rock around the beam on the dining room ceiling.
