Put up some sheetrock and joint compound. This is what happens when you're tenant overflows a toilet.

Also, I'm not sure if that's ur final picture, but a drywall patch that big needs drywall tape, and also it has to be much much wider ~8-12 inch wide along the seam.

Not done, that was just the first coat. Disoriented to bridge the gap between the sheetrock and old plaster.  Not my first time doing sheetrock or plaster.

I went through our 3rd bedroom which has become a storage for us. I'm constantly amazed at how much garbage I have.
I feel like some low level hoarder.

I have, had random crap going back years. I'm talking stuff like a gas receipt for $8 from '08. I don't even own that car anymore.

I also had every box from generations of computer upgrades going back to 2010. Ridiculous.

Anyway, I made some great progress and feel closer to having a 3rd bedroom, or actual guest room.

The cleanse continues…

I'd like to be able to throw out some of my old treasured belongings, but I am far too attached to them.

Makes it difficult to move house - we have to find somewhere with lots and lots of storage sapce.

In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Ideally you'd want to fill in the middle too.. But I'm not sure if you'd buy a big enough tube for that.

Are you using dry mix, or premade.

Same.  :-[  Boxes from electronics / computer parts back to 2007 or so.  I'm finally starting to purge all this crap that I clearly don't need, and it is one of the best feelings.

Bigger house has more space to acquire more treasured belongings.

This is not a cycle that can end well.

No need to cover it all just the seams.

Used dry mix for most of it because it's stronger and dries faster. Light compound for the final coats.

I always cover the middle, because otherwise, you run the risk of it looking like there's a donut on the ceiling..

Although depending on your lighting situation, that may not be a big issue.

The joint compound should be very *very* thin. And tapered at the edges. Add ceiling flat, and you won't ever notice it.

It has to be around an 1/8 inch when you lay it on and shrinks about 2:1,  then you put another 8th on there.

the thin taper is for edges.. for the seams you want it thick..  Which is why they usually fill the middle too to prevent depth contrast.

Read the drama on MakeApp. Looks like yearly temperature in the USA raised a couple degrees.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I saw a Realforce on a coworker's desk.

My colleagues are into all sorts of well-marketed vertical mice and Cherry boards but... Realforce?!
