The whole ceiling-cracking-bit was an unexpected, not to mention unwelcome, surprise. But it wasn't as catastrophic as it could have been. We had a 4'x4' piece of OSB duct taped to our ceiling for a few days, and a messy kitchen during the repairs, but that's really small beans compared to everything else this little house has undergone. I'm pleased to say we have a freshly sheet rocked, and textured ceiling, good as new! It has yet to be painted...but that's neither here nor there. Maybe that'll get done...maybe, sayith the Master Painter Extraordinaire.
Scout was pretty excited about all the action. Believe it or not, having a crawling baby makes one ever more aware of filth on the floor. Especially in the fine powdery sheetrock/drywall form. Thank goodness that was a quick project. Otherwise, I probably would have gone a little nuts.
