So. Now that I have built a wall, I know so much that I could do this wall much better...if I took it down. Which I am not going to do. So I'm making myself a list to look at next time.

1. When hanging sheetrock, check to make sure the framing is actually in places where you can reasonably attach the sheetrock. Particularly make sure there are no bits that jut out at floor level so that your wall has to be diagonal to attach to both.

2. Score and snap. Also, ask all relatives for advice BEFORE project. Apparently they are full of advice. :)

3. Never, ever, ever again use the stupid 6-foot-long tape measure. There's a perfectly good super long silver one on the work table.

4. It turns out it is, actually, possible to mud a 90-degree corner. It 100+ degree heat it is not, however, possible to have enough patience to mud one very well.

5. Schedule all summer work for early morning or late night, not noon.

6. Don't try to glue trim. Leetle tiny nails work perfectly well.

7. I'm not sure what went wrong with the wallpaper. Oh well.

When you've reached the Oh, well stage, you know it's time to stop. :)
