Drywalling and cold just don't work well together!
Not only does the drywall mud not dry well - it is more likely to freeze - it is downright unpleasant to work in the cold.
...and it is starting to get nippy now in Western Québec!
So I had the electrician install two temporary 240 volt outlets, one in the basement and one on the main floor, so that we could power a construction grade hydro heater.
It was actually an easy thing for him to do since he just connected off the stove outlet in the kitchen (seen in the picture) and connected a second in the basement off the dryer outlet.
Now if we could only get Hydro Québec to get in to connect us up to the grid...
