Okay back to work, every apartment needs a ceiling, not exposed floor joists. So today I bit the bullet and went to purchase my ceiling grid and inserts for the apartment.
All went well, for the first few parts, but the Main parts, the main beams for the supported ceiling, were trash, junk. The store had 25 of them, I needed 8. There was NOT ONE that was not damaged beyond use. I asked for some help, was sent from one to another thru 4 folks, no one could find any more, they offered to sell the rest at half price. I laughed, actually laughed and informed the manager that he knew we were looking at scrap metal, it would be sold for the price of 10 cents a pound making each $15 piece worth about 30 cents. He agreed, but could be no further help except to order more, it would take a week or so.
I turned down the offer.
I brought the good purchases home, unloaded and found everything I needed in the neighboring town. So I am good to go .......... when I remember how to hang this stuff. LOL It has been about 25 years since I hung a dropped ceiling…
Hopefully I will have a picture of the progress in the morrow.
Thanks again for all you who read & comment.
PS: I talked to my friend, Billy, a day of so ago. He loved his 1956 Studebaker Hawk. I asked if he was still driving it. He said, "Jack I sold it and bought me a T-Bird," laughing he continued, "It has air conditioning.!" Yep A/C was not high on the list in the 1950s, and this weather lets you know A/C is good.
