Drywalling is much more than stacking rocks.  If not properly placed and shimmed a drywall can be a real hazard.  After a vehicle collision this century old dry wall wall was in need of serious rebuilding.  The homeowner also wanted it extended about 10 feet. The homeowner and her brother originally started the repairs.   A few days into the project she  realised  that if not done properly it would not last and her grandchildren could be hurt if they climbed on it. Using stone from the piles scattered around the property we built a sturdy, solid wall  that can barely be distinguished from the original.
