The party wall (should it be the potty wall?) between my apartment and the small studio apartment next door leaves a lot to be desired as far as noise bleeding through so I decided to install a second layer of sheet rock over the existing one with a layer of green glue (a visceolastic compound that absorbs sound waves) between them. I did the same thing in my art studio room upstairs and the results were awesome!
The ceiling with all that nasty popcorn shit scraped off, sanded and ready to prime. This angle kinda reminds me of how they used to film the bad guy's hideouts on the old Batman TV show! Where's Julie Newmar dammit!!
Here I started to install the cedar paneling on the new drop down ceiling thing above the counter. This is the fun part for me!
A view from the bathroom doorway. Trying to get a pic that actually gives an idea of how this room is set up! On the right side you can just see the washing machine and behind that wall sticking out on the left is where the terlet is.
New light fixture over the camode. I installed one over the washer-dryer area as well...now they both actually match!! who woulda thunk it! It kinda reminds me of the dome of the Enterprise! I also spent almost an hour taking the exhaust vent fan apart and cleaning it.
Here I've test fit the maple header board apparatus that will eventually hold the mirror. The areas that are chiseled out for the screws will have decorative wood blocks covering them when it's done. You can also see some brown wall board installed. That will get covered with cedar paneling but I had to put that board down first so that the drywall and paneling would be flush at the joint. it's still in the ugly stage but less so than before and no more drywall to sand, woo hoo!
Another thrill-packed installment coming soon!
