Saturday morning. Andre from Celis Drywall is in the house by himself, continuing to hang drywall. The ceilings are done. He’s putting up walls — transforming a construction zone with exposed studs and insulation into rooms with walls.

Ron Dahlke is using steel studs to frame the fireplace, prepping the brick to be covered by fire-resistant drywall. This is one of the design mandates for Emerald Hill — get rid of the yellow brick, either by paint on the exterior or drywall on the interior.
Downstairs in the office, Ron hung OSB sheathing to serve as blocking for the shelves that Steven plans for the south wall. Drywall will go over the sheathing, and the OSB will provide structural support when Steven hangs shelving.
