Okay, that was fuckin' difficult (long story.) I'll pre-fill the larger gaps tomorrow and then ready for tape and mud on Friday.

I was thinking today how far off my estimates usually are on projects like this. When it comes to drywall it's at least a factor of 10x, but I'm learning. Just like most skills/disciplines, hanging drywall is all about the prep. Nothing in that alcove was in plane, and when it came to the ceiling piece there was almost nothing to drive screws in to. I spent two days just preparing the area, shimming and adding attachment points. I'd starve if I had to do this for a living. :CWL:

Friday I'll have to confront my biggest fear which is smearing compound on the joints and corners. I've never been good at at (only really tried it once.) Many YT videos are being watched.

I just gave one of these to my son. Needed room in the safe.
I just love when I save for something and feel proud about my purchase only to have a parent give their kid, said thing...

IDK. Some jackass at the gun store scoffed at my purchase while rolling his eyes... Followed by his statement "sheet metal". Whatever... he was buying some dorky ass looking bullpup thing (and was having a hard time checking out because he was trying to hide his purchase from the wife).

🤷‍♂️ Of all the rifles in the safe the only one that has a loaded magazine inserted is a Bulgarian AK, I know which one I am grabbing when things get really S****y.

In all fairness, my son is 32 years old, married and financially secure and has not borrowed any money from me since he was a little kid. He could easily have gone and purchased it himself.

An AK style gun is a common gun and at one time you could buy them for $250 with a 1000 rounds of ammo back in the 90s. It is not like buying one today. Hell at one time you could buy a SKS with 1000 rounds for under $100.

My ability to give away something should have zero impact on someone else ability to cherish something that they like and saved for. I think that if someone saves up and buys something that they want, that it is awesome and I hope it brings them value. It is not that I did not value the gun anymore, It is that it is hard to buy for a 32 year old man that is financially secure.
