Love Me Some Drywall!

Our hard work tearing down the garage ceiling was all worth it when the hubby and I arrived at the house on Friday night.  Although the following pictures are super dark and creepy looking, don't let it fool you...our garage's appearance and function is much improved now that we have double 5/8" drywall on the ceiling!  And all the new insulation that was added will ensure our new master bath pipes won't freeze in the winter, and we'll be toasty warm in master suite for years to come.

Still on the to-do list for the garage...1) Getting the drywall prepped and ready for paint, 2) Finishing the light installation, 3) Cleaning up the remainder of the messy wires, 4) Installing new {insulated} garage doors and garage door openers, 5) Painting/drylocking the garage, 6) Finishing the garage floor off, 7) Repairing the taped up insulation around the HVAC duct and 8) Installing a header/fire collars around two plumbing pipes.

Plus, we'll eventually want to add some shelving/storage/organization stuff down the road.

I used to shudder at the thought of having to be in the garage for a second longer than it took to find a paint brush or my gardening gloves.  Now, it's really starting to come together.  I can't believe how far our garage {and house for that matter} has come!
