    NO THANK YOU!!!
    I built a scaffold (on wheels with brakes) with 4' rollers so I didn't have to lift but one end at a time & walked/roll it up to the top in 4' increments for the ceiling. Then wooden "T" bars to hold it in place while I screwed it on.
    It was fun, I could get 2 to 3 ceiling pieces a day.
    Walls were 1/2", used the scaffold with step ups on the side then rolled the scaffold it in place.
    12' was bad enough, less taping, 16' would take a "real men" to hang :)

    Took care to not break thru the vapor barrier. Insulated the electrical boxes.
    Keep it around 40 when not out there working. Thought about a wood stove, still may put one in but floor space is a premium.
    I keep adding shelves high up so not to use up floor space.

    That is beautiful Dave. Great work you do and I can relate to the time thing. How could we ever find enough time to go back to a regular job?

    Oh, are you sure that wood was seasoned enough? :)
