Pasta Making Class
This is the best & most creative DIY project I've seen here. What a beautiful outcome!
I'm a girl too, and hung most of the ceilings in the house we were building, by myself, when everyone else was working at their day job. You need a ladder and two 2x4's. Take one 2x4 and cut it in 1/2 so you have a 4ft. length. Attach the 4' piece to the end of a full 2x8 with the wide side facing up to form a T. That will be your extra hands! Lift one end of the drywall up and holding the T at an angle put it under that end of the drywall and push it up to the ceiling and wedge it there. Pick up the other end of the drywall sheet and climb the ladder. Put the drywall in place in the ceiling and holding it in place with your head, proceed to screw it into place. When one end is attached, move the ladder to the other end, climb the ladder, move the T away and attach as you did the first end. The T also will hold the top of a DW sheet to the sidewall while you attach it, obviously using a spacer at the bottom to adjust the to the proper height. It's a terrific set of extra hands that doesn't need any breaks and doesn't tell you your wrong either!
