Writing from North Smithfield, RI, on our way to NYC for the weekend. Joe and his sheetrock hanging helper showed up yesterday morning just after 7am, and the truck with all the sheetrock for the house arrived shortly after. After an hour or so of lugging sheets into the house, they got right to work, and by the time we left at 3pm, they'd hung the stairwell, the ceiling for the second floor and they were working on the ceiling downstairs. Michelle and I were working to get the place ready up to the last minute. It's been a long haul to get to this turning point; and, because of the rush and pressure, it hasn't been an enjoyable process. The last month in particular. By the time we return late on Tuesday, the whole house will be hung and ready for tape. We'll return with our kitchen cabinets in a rental truck.
