How not to hang drywall

A nice gentleman from the Wentzville Fire Department signed off on my plan and framing, yay! Here is a look at some of the framing before I got started hanging drywall.

Getting the drywall down to the basement proved to be quite the adventure. My basement is not a walk-out and the stairs bend 180°. With much bending (of me) and exertion I was able to just barely get a 48″x90″ piece down the stairs. This is quite exhausting as you can imagine.

The Good Lord has blessed me with many talents but hanging drywall is not one of them. I am hoping for the best when it is all said and done. One joint in particular turned out really badly. Surely it will improve as I go along? =)

A few sheets hung and one really horrid joint
