What a difference drywall makes. The kitchen is now really starting to take shape.
Although I'm doing most of the work myself for the overall remodel, there are 3 things that I've hired out: plumbing, drywall, and cabinetry. I feel these are best left to the professionals. So far, I've been very successful. Alternative Drywall hung the sheetrock and applied the first mud in probably 5 hours, then came back the next day and applied the second mudding and primer. I was very impressed and the detail around the beams is great. If it were me, I'd still be haggling with hanging. I highly recommend these guys to any of you Portlanders out there.
