Due to the garage door tracks and brackets, I have to basically patch my drywall around those. I am basically doing my best at it, and honestly, I wouldn't have been inspired if it wasn't for the breeze that made its way through, somehow, the caulked seams on the siding, and through the gap between the butted studs.
Nothing I can do there to insulate that beyond...
#1. Take leftover partial tube of Alex Plus caulk, and caulk that seam between the butted studs.
#2. Sheet rock over the whole shebang to at least stop the drafts...
So I got at least the big part done. I know it is less than ideal, but I am patching this wall segment back together a piece at a time. It will be a good thing to just be done with all of this work!
I have one small section up top between the brackets that needs to be patched and of course the area around the AC ducts. Then tape, mud, sand, second coat mud, sand, paint... I don't expect much from this wall segment to be honest with you...
I have the design for the miter saw hood done, and the 3/4" ply set aside and ready to go. I do need to get some 1/2" ply for the top.
Tonight, if I can get time in there, I am planning on finishing up getting the wallboard patches in place, taping done, and the first coat of mud, then if time permits shove the camping / hunting stuff into the attic.
