    I have come to the conclusion, that exposure to drywall and compound dust has a strange affect upon the brain, it destroys the ability to make basic decisions, the ability to return to the same work location two days in a row is greatly deminished.
    Still learning opinions welcome.

    With the kind of drywallers I've met, I'd have to agree

    You should be more careful picking your dates.

    You mean they start sheetrocking before you're done with the rough-in?
    Get back to work.

    Happened many many times with me. They get ticked when you have to rip some rock down so you can finish your duct work too.

    I'm surprised the builder starts putting up sheetrock before the mechanical is done. Rough-in inspection, HVAC...electrical...and plumbing, has to be passed before the first piece of insulation is put in. I guess there are different codes in other regions. I'd hate working around sheetrockers.
    Get back to work.

    Its just because they need the work at that time its like when the boss tries to start Rough in a home before the roof is on.

    I like it when we start r/i without ths shingles, as long as it's no raining to hard. Leave the flashings,collar,and cap in the garage and let Juan Valdez put it on.
