In the end
There is so many small (and big) things to do. But I'll get there.

Thanks David.
This seems to take forever, but the end result looks good, so that's the focus.

You're most welcome Peter. It does appear that you are putting in some quality work on the reno.

It's taking time as you're concentrating on the quality and not just throwing it up like some others would.

By the time I'm reasonably good at it, the renovation will be done.
But I hope to keep some of that general DIY knowledge for the next one

Hahahahahaha. True.
Drywall / plasterboard is done
Last battens are in too.
Tomorrow I will continue insulating the ceiling and after that, time for the drywall on the ceiling.
That is going to be a massive task again.
I did buy a sheet lifter. I still have to put it together, but I think (hope) it will save me a lot of headache.

Excellent update Peter.  From personal experience I can say that the lifter saved us a lot of time and muscle aches.  It was well worth rental fee for us.  Drywalling a ceiling is no easy task, just be forewarned.

I hope this one will serve me well. Not feeling the time pressure of a rental is the main reason why I went for this solution.

Just put it together.

But I will keep you updated
Not today btw. I'm putting in all the measurements from the beams.

It will take some time as I can't lift the big sheets myself, but I hope to be getting 'there' soon

I hear you on that.  Too heavy for one person.

Yeah, the smaller ones are doable, but these break when one person tries to put them somewhere.

I'm always amazed how weak this stuff is, until you put it on the wall with some support.

Exactly, the longer the piece of sheet rock the more flemsy it gets and heavier it feels.
