Just jump in. Stop thinking about everything that might hold you back and go for it. All of the lists and plans that you're making might be keeping you from actually making the work - don't use them as an excuse to start. Don't be afraid of failure. You'll learn the most that way even though it's scary. And make friends with people who are also makers. They'll push you when you need it, they understand what you're going through, and they can give you advice that really resonates.

drywall, tape and primer

This lasted almost two weeks. There are many angles that had to be cut just right and then filled in due to the old work and nature of a settled 60 year old home. Tape, mud and sand. And when they were done, mud and sand a few more times. The walls look great and we wanted to move up there right away.

electric and insulation

This rounded out the end of week two. Two can lights, 4 eyeball lights, an exhaust fan/light, electric heat, and numerous outlets and switches. I could not believe the amount of wire running through the walls and ceiling. Reason number 2 for throwing in the towel.

to many wires for me to deal with
