Japanese Girls and Dry Wall

The Japanese architectural team of young women with their professor visited our building site on Tuesday. They took still pictures, video, and they used an electronic laser to measure everything. They were very thorough and asked a lot of questions. As always, they were very charming and so interested in what we were doing.

Dylan as usual was right in the middle of everything. Sitting in a ready-to-jump up position if anyone wanted to pet him.
After the girls left, Steve did some yard work. We ordered the sheet rock and waited for the inspector. The inspector arrived early the next morning and signed off on the insulation and stucco lath sheathing. He gave us the go ahead to start hanging the dry wall.

Steve rented a dry wall hoist and started screwing in the sheetrock. The screw pattern for the ceiling (we asked the inspector so we wouldn't have any problems like the furring nails) was a screw every 14", but he suggested we go tighter. The
pattern for the walls was a screw every 16". We used 1/2" sheet rock.

At the end of the hall is the family room. And you can see part of a wall with the special structural wood next to the door. This wall is the wall between the family room and the garage so it has to have sheetrock that is 5/8" type X which is fire resistant on both sides of the wall. The garage wall when finished can burn for an hour, supposedly, before fire attacks the family room. This is a safety code as most fires start in the garage.

These last two pictures are of Steve cleaning up. He likes to keep his work area clean as it is easier for him to work. Outside the house is also clean, as he takes all the trash, left over wood and stuff, to the dump. From the front of the house you wouldn't even know we are doing an addition.

Next a much needed vacation for Steve - a three day long range fishing trip. Stay tuned to see if he catches any fish and to find out what Dylan and I will do to the addition while he is gone.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on
the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly
get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
..HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than
that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design.
With thanks

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you
should publish more on this topic, it may not be a
taboo subject but generally people do not speak
about these subjects. To the next! Cheers!!
