With both Shayne and I working different shifts, it makes it really difficult to get a two-person job completed. Like skimcoating. Our next day off together is sometime next week, and I'm bound and determined to at least start the job. Well, I guess technically I have already started it. I've put fiberglass mesh tape along all the big cracks. So... yeah. Lots of progress there. But I guess it is coming along. And once we've figured out this skimcoating thing, I might feel comfortable doing it myself. But until then, I'm going to be a weenie and wait until I have the proper moral support (and a big, tall guy who is better at patching holes than I am).
Another downside of the opposing schedules is that I can't do anything noisy (like sanding) during the day, since Shayne is sleeping. I've considered working out of order and sanding the nursery floor while I wait for other projects to fall into place, but that can't really happen either. And now my mom has stolen my zipwall, dremel sander, and orbital sander, so I can't even work on the stairs on days that Shayne works and I'm off(not that I want to).
So... Stay tuned. Maybe eventually we'll get something done.
