Wainscoting and Sheetrock
9/23/10 Waincoting is from wood we had sawed roughly ten years ago. It was from 125 year old, 125' tall pines. It has been air drying since then. We sawed it to length, planed it, and grooved each edge to provide for overlap. My brother Thomas helped me do the planing and my wife Mary Jane helped me install it. Smith Drywall is doing the sheetrock installation. Smith has found the sheetrocking to be a little more difficult due to issues of extra height and it being a converted shipping container. We still have to finish the ceilings of the porches, blow the isulation on top of the containers (1' in addition to the 4" inside), HVAC installation, floor sanding, install cabinets and kitchen, marble on bathroom floor, doors and trim inside, and probably more than I have thought of.
