This is the rough taping before I worked, and worked, and worked, to get it all smoothed out. What a nightmare!

The next task after the removal of the old kitchen, was all about sheetrock repair and painting. You will not believe what a mess the glue from the granite did to the walls. It pulled off huge chunks of sheetrock in some places, and left huge holes in others. The granite back-splash left huge glue-globs that had to be scraped and chiseled off, before it could be remudded and taped. I cannot tell you the hours I spent sweating in the summer heat, at this horrid task. I am no fine sheetrocker, and I haven't fixed holes, taped, or finished a wall since the 1980's, when we managed an apartment complex. But I couldn't get my sheetrock guy to show up, so I had to do it myself. The fellows were coming to bring in my new cabinets, and I couldn't delay them, so what you will see is the best I could do, under the circumstances.
