Outdoor Lighting

Installing Low Voltage Lighting

Here is a way to provide pleasant illumination to outdoor areas for a small amount of money. You can purchase most of the components in a kit. Some kits come with a timer or a photovoltaic sensor to turn lights on at night and off during the day. Installing low voltage lighting is a good do-it-yourself project.

Drywall installation

 

 

  Cutting drywall

Mark the cutting line to the front paper layer using a pencil and straightedge, or snap a chalk line. Cut through the front paper layer using a utility knife. After that, turn the drywall over, and break the gypsum core by bending it toward the back. Finish by cutting the rear paper over the crease. After fitting drywall around obstructions for example doorways, windows, and outlets, carefully measure from the edge of an adjacent wallboard panel or reference point and up from the floor towards the obstruction. Transfer the measurements to a brand new panel, and make the required cuts using a utility knife or drywall saw.

 

 

 

 

 Fastening drywall

On ceilings, fasten drywall panels perpendicular to joists with annular ring nails or drywall screws. Easy and simple and best technique is always to drive in screws using a screw gun. Screw spacing is standard every 8 inches along panel ends and at intermediate joists. On walls, nails or screw panels to studs. Drywall nails go in quicker, but they generally tend to pop over time as studs dry out. Set nails heads slightly below the surface into shallow dimples, recess screw heads.

 

 

 

 

Application techniques.

For your ceiling, place a couple of stepladders, or set up a few strong sawhorses, laying a couple of planks across them to function a quick scaffold. After this you and then a assistant can hold each end of your panel in place using your heads. Put in fasteners at the middle of every panel. Next place the following few fasteners at the edge to take the weigh off your heads. Another way is to construct t-braces. The length of these braces be supposed to equal the height from the floor to your ceiling joist. While the panel is positioned, the additional thickness can help wedge the brace in place. On walls, install the panels horizontally if possible and stagger vertical joints. This assists bridge irregularities between studs, ends in a stronger wall, and makes finishing easier. Center panel ends or edges over studs. But how to install on ceiling is to utilize a drywall lift

 

 

  Drywall compound

Concealing the joints with drywall tape also compound between panels and corners demands patience and care. Put on joint compound then drywall tape to joints, after that spread compound over the dimples left from the screws or nails. Mark the placement of your studs and additional framing members so you'll be familiar with where to drive fasteners throughout installation. Add 1 by or 2 by backing in conditions where extra support is critical to hold up drywall edges. Employ premix drywall compound for most taping and finishing jobs to eliminate messy mixing and lumpy results. Use paper joint tape with premix drywall compound.

  Cutting drywall; Straight cuts

 

1. To generate vertical cuts, set the drywall panel next to a wall while using front side facing out. Mark the preferred length to the face, then place a drywall t-square along at the mark. Grasp the square in place using your hand and foot, and cut through the face paper, using a utility knife. Variation: Make

horizontal cuts by extending a tape measure to the desire width of your cut, and hooking a utility knife blade beneath the end of your tape. Grip the tape tightly in a single hand |along with the knife in another, and move both hands over the panel to cut though the face paper.

 

 

2. Bend the scored section backwards together with both hands to break the drywall core. Fold back the not needed piece, and cut through the back paper with the utility knife.

 

 

Cutting drywall: Notches  

                                                 

1. For big notches or long, straight cuts, use a sizable drywall saw. These saws are useful intended for cutting out door plus window openings once the drywall is attached to your wall. Make notches by means of sawing right down to the bottom on your notch on both sides.

 

 

2. Finish by cutting the face paper all along the underside on your notch, using a utility knife. Snap the Cut out backwards to break the drywall center, after that cut the rear paper.

 

 

3. Cutting drywall holes. Utilize a very small drywall saw in making internal cuts in drywall. These saws have pointed ends so the blade may be driven through the board to begin the cut.

 

 

  Installing drywall

 

1. Measure for the very first sheet of drywall, starting in the corner and centering the opposite the other end on the wall stud. If needed, cut a sheet to fit. Install the sheets horizontally to create taping quicker and simpler. Want to offset the sheets stagger vertical joints so taped joints is not going to be noticeable.

 

 

2. Secure the sheet by means of either drywall nails or else screws. The purpose is always to dimple the drywall surface with no puncturing the paper. In case you are by means of drywall screws, drive them in in order that they sit slightly below the surface, but you should not break the paper covering. Usually, screw or nail spacing is every 8 inches along panel ends and edges and along intermediate supports. Fasteners should be no less than 3/8 inch from sides.
