Over the last two weeks, I have finally put up the drywall panels to complete the ceiling under the loft. I got to use a nifty drill bit that allows you to drive a screw into drywall without going all the way through it. I bought it years ago, but never had the chance to use it, and it worked surprisingly well, considering it's a two dollar replacement for a 200 dollar zip-gun the the pros use.
And here are some pictures of the drywall installation. First mesh tape, and then several layers of mud, with some sanding in between
