My plan for my most severely water damaged ceiling (the one in the computer room) was to cover it with drywall and start with a new surface. Putting drywall on a ceiling is kind of tricky. And it’s definitely not a one person job. I am deeply indebted to Denis who helped me accomplish the task. I definitely owe him dinner.
I’m not the best drywall screwer-inner in the world, but I’m sure they’ll stay up. My work is sometimes ugly, but always sturdy. It’s been that way since I was a kid playing with Legos. My creations were not elegant, but they could survive a fall down the stairs.
Anyway, this will be a great way to start with a fresh, smooth surface. …If I can mud it properly. Wish me luck!
