The Genius of Panel Lifts

Who ever invented this contraption is freakin' brilliant. Can you imagine lifting sheets of 5/8" drywall over your head to screw them to a 9 foot ceiling?

I can.

And I am REALLY glad I didn't have to do it.

I rented this panel lift and in a few hours had all the drywall fastened to the ceiling in the kitchen. By myself!

The best part is that the kitchen is really starting to take shape (literally). It is hard to imagine a space when you can see through the 2x4 framed walls and ceiling. When it all gets covered you can see it actually being a kitchen (imagine that...).

Just needs a 'little' tape and mud...
Recessed lights will be above the counters and work spaces.
