I Fought The Wall, And The Wall Won!

The best 270º panorama I could come up with from the left L to the right L of sheet rocked inside of the darkroom.

I sheet rocked in the darkroom Sunday. I turned out to quite frustrating and painful at times, mostly because the heads of the sheet rock screws strip easily. I couldn’t find a bit that seated well into the screw head, which made the bit want to slip off the screw head, so I ended up unintentionally driving the bit into my fingers and palms of my hands more than once. Over the past several weekends, I got water into the darkroom, ran electrical, and put in a light. Laurie came up with the title, because she said all the noise from screw heads striping and me yelling about a resulting injury, unintended hole in the wall or broken piece of sheet rock, sounded like the wall was winning. I took Laurie into the dark-side of the newly sheet rocked darkroom to check it out, and as I swung the portal door around she said “I can’t see a damn thing!” It is dark inside, so I think I’ll go “soccer” on it and call it a tie!

  1. Looks good! Projects always take longer than one would like (I’ve got a few of those myself), but that looks like you will have a great workspace when it is all done.

    Easter lilies started blooming today. Heat setting in here now in the Willamette Valley. Forecast is for 100 today.

    • Hope you don’t fry too badly in the heat. It’s going on two years since I started on the bathroom remodel and have sever finishing touches to complete, and it only took me a little over a year to replace a door with broken glass, so in light of the status of projects, the darkroom is moving right along.
