I remember a friend from work who had something similar happen at her house a couple of years ago, and she sent me a link on Angie's List for the painter who does drywall, plaster, etc. He's coming by tomorrow. Thank goodness to finally talk to a human being and not a phone answering machine. I left several messages, we'll see if any of the NextDoor folks return my calls. Only one of them is listed as actually doing drywall. I suspect Nextdoor doesn't hold a candle to Angie's list as far as sound recommendations.

Meanwhile, I've moved stuff from the center of the room into the dining room and I need to move a lot more out. I'm sure to work in there it will raise a dust and knock into things. The hall also needs the same work done (before it also collapses) so I guess putting the rest of my office stuff in the room next to the hall wouldn't be helpful. It has a "pony wall" that would let a lot of dust in there.

I think I may have to set up an office in one of the kid's bedrooms for the time being. The dining table works for now, but I need to store a lot of other equipment out of dust's way. I have a couple of tarps in the garage I'll bring in to have ready.
