Another step complete! In order to save money we hung all the drywall ourselves. It took about 3 weeks to hang all the drywall during evenings/weekends. We hired 2 local guys to do the mudding and taping within the house. They were at the house 8am-4pm and took 3 weeks to complete. I can only imagine how long it would have taken Brent & I. To save money, Brent and I mudded/taped the garage & basement ourselves.
For the paint, we went with Benjamin Moore – Silver Satin in a matte finish. I debated between 2 other popular colours, BM – Grey Owl and BM – Classic Grey. I found the Grey Owl was too dark and the Classic Grey was too beige. I rolled the walls with primer and Brent sprayed the ceilings to save time. It took me about 2 full weeks to paint the house. I am so happy with the colour.
Not going to lie, putting in insulation in January was pretty miserable with no heat. We outsourced the spray foam since we don’t own the equipment as well as the vapour barrier. The 2 guys that came and did the vapour were in and out within a day. They were very efficient.
