Drywall, Lights, Roof

November 3, 2009

The Hillary’s called on a referral from their interior designer (Diane Schlageter).  Diane is an excellent designer, with tons of local success stories and referrals.  Check her out.

The Hillary’s wanted to remove the fluorescent lights in the kitchen and replace them with recessed lighting. They also wanted to raise the height of the kitchen ceiling by six inches to give it a more spacious feel.

I began by removing the lights, existing drywall and rafters of the kitchen ceiling. Next, I used a drywall jack to hold the drywall to the ceiling while I screwed it in.

With the drywall installed and taped, I laid out the lighting and cut the holes for the cans. After the holes were cut, I ran the wiring and installed the lights.

The next step was to texture the ceiling to match the rest of the house. After the texture dried it was time for primer and a matching ceiling paint.

After the kitchen was complete Richard asked if I would be willing to wash their terracotta tile roof and do some repairs as needed.
The roof cleaned up nicely, and while I was at it, I cleaned the gutters and sidewalks as needed.

In the end they were happy, which led to three other roofs in the neighborhood.
