Answer
Hi Jerome,

Here are some really good websites.  Let me know if you need more information.  This is really a hard job to try and do yourself.  Take my advice and get a case of beer and invite some friends over.  But wait until you get the drywall up before you start in on the beer! :-)

Good luck!
Steve
