    "You could sell one of those basses and have enough money to finish the Sheetrock in this room"

    Please excuse the mess. My kids just finished their daily ransacking ritual.

  2. I don't know about selling anything but unfinished walls would be driving me nuts.

    Yeah, Hurricane Toddler makes a daily appearance in my space too.

    Let's not be hasty about selling anything. At least you don't have to use a stud finder for your wall hangers.

    All that exposed insulation makes for GREAT sound, though!!

    Hang SOMETHING on those walls....even if it is cheap fabric from a piece goods store. You and your kids are breathing fiberglass!

  11. You need a drum set more than sheet rock IMO.

    I think I see plastic sheeting over the insulation, so I don't think it's as dangerous as it may seem.

    But I would finish that. Sell the violin.

  14. Shouldn't that be in the bedroom where you can hang clothes on it?

    I don't know whether to applaud your courage or despair at your stupidity...:D

    I think I see a few studs without basses hanging on them. I'd fill those spots first before wasting money on drywall.

    Ok, your kids were involved in some type of "ritual". Maybe it's not blasphemy. Carry on.
