Memorial Day work weekend

We went up to Greene and worked on replacing the center of the ceiling in one of the upstairs bedroom. We weren't sure what we were getting into when we started. Ok I need to stop saying we because I was not part of the tearing out part of this process. Will started early and thankfully found that there was some sort of backing under the plaster. It wasn't your typical lath and plaster thank goodness. That meant no insulation falling down all around him.  Jeff and Mary came to his rescue later that morning and turned his one man team into a 2/ sometimes 3 man team. Yeah Jeff and Mary. 

Tearing out the plaster!

This is my favorite picture!
After running for supplies, bracing up the ceiling in the hot attic then putting up new drywall, its time to mud. Mary is trying to mud screw holes for the first time. She did a fantastic Job.

Now left for another weekend will be to texture spray, prime and paint. Soon Grammy Beach will have a nice office/guest room.
