my dad came over and put my mind at ease. since he paid for the drywall I figured I’d get bitched out, but nah he was like that’s fine. we’ll cut another piece.
But because I cut off the square edge, that second piece was trashed. Then he cut the third piece. It… fit… like a frikken glove. lol I don’t know how the hell he does it.
I cut one piece too long and one piece that just one corner was too short at an angle. Apparently when I measure 25.5" I cut it to 24". I have no idea how I did it, but I know I measured twice and cut once.
Drywall > me. Doesn’t help when your 80 year old house isn’t square… at all.
But we got it done at least.
Here’s the pieces I’m talking about.
Top left piece above the window; we cut that three times.
On the right side of the window; I cut it once, then twice… then sanded it down to get it to fit snuggly.
Here’s the shower wall we glued on. He accidently drilled all the way through from the otherside and ripped off part of the waterproof coating. He was fairly pissed about that.
He actually gave up golfing to come over tonight. I was surprised. That’s him… he stood up just as i took the picture so he’s in it. haha
