Fireplace Remodel Day Seventeen

Day #17 is another compilation of the bits we got done last weekend in between all the other things we had going on. The major thing we were working towards is getting the fireplace ready for tile, and finishing up making dust, especially in the hallway.

First priority was getting the new drywall to the right side of the fireplace and in the hallway ready for texture. This is more or less how it came out; the rough corners in the second photo have since been smoothed out.

We also finished up the drywall in the lightwell. This bit is not going to be textured, so we spent a little bit longer getting it all perfectly flat and blended in with the ceiling. The ceiling will be getting texture sooner or later.

It is not obvious in the next photo, but the shoe rack/cabinet has had some baseboard fitted, and a few other little tweaks.

Then it was back to slapping more thin set mortar onto the fireplace....

Mixing up another batch...

And screeding it smooth  with a very straight edge. There is some overlap around the firebox, and we still have the top half to do.

To be continued...
