Drywalling mechanical room.

This is the mechanical room. Instead of leaving the mechanical room just bare and unfinished, I want to properly drywall the mechanical room and paint it. But since this is a room that’s not really being used or visible all the time, I’ve decided to just do it myself.

And that’s why door frame has to be installed before drywall is hung.
