Impressive

I got to where I felt like I could patch and blend most spots but a ceiling and patch that size - I would be thrilled with that! A section in the light, window reflection, texture, and sheen,

Just blue top mudd, from home depot. I used a 4" knife.. and just randomly
spread it. I blended the rest with the same texture just too make it more uniform.


It was blown insulation...must have been fun when it fell..in the middle of the night on their bed when they were sleeping. Air conditioner unit was leaking in the attic.

Nice work.

Wasn't part of the job, but when we opened up the ceiling further, we removed anything wet / damp or moldy.

After we hung the mold resistant drywall, we went up in the ceiling and
spread the bag of blown insulation we bought at home depot. I didn't even know they sold it by the bag...
