So, we had a company come in and help us clean the closet. Okay, they actually did all the cleaning, I just mainly let them in the house and watched while they worked.
Once the wall was done and the crawlspace was clean (stang, no pictures), it was time to finally put the wall back up. My brother in Christ Kevin Naas came over after helping me get the drywall boards from Lowe’s.
That’s Kevin in the side of the picture, and that’s the first board to be going into place. Measure, cut, re-measure because the studs aren’t exactly right (okay, they’re way wrong!) and soon the closet looked like this.
followed by some mudding,
and the closet looks pretty done. Well, sorta. That was day one. Day two included mounting our new pantry shelves. After dusting myself by sanding down the mud in a confined space (note to self, mud dust will tend to float into the office and coat EVERYTHING), it was time to mount the rails.
