Last night I finished the taping of all the insulation using Tuck Tape. Its turning into a real gaudy display of color down there with light yellow wood strapping, pink insulation, red and black tape, not to mention the grimy grey floor and dark wood joists. Very fashionable…
In fact the plywood stiffeners I laminated to the joists co-ordinate quite well with the dark wood existing joists

and the black and white wiring (which hopefully will be changed when the electricians come to do the rewire next week,) it seems almost a shame to cover this up. Maybe if I don’t drywall the ceiling people will think that it was intentional not that I ran out of time? Probably not.
I just took a look at the schedule and given the amount of time remaining, it will be close to get everything done on time, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.
