James put another hole in the wall, right next to the previous one I'd already repaired. I think this has weakened the wall so much, a patch won't do it - I have to take out a square of drywall and replace it. So now I have to teach myself how to do drywall repair. Does anyone have any advice, and can you recommend any books (with pictures) that will give me clear, easy-to-understand instructions on how to do this? I'm sure I can do it, I just need to learn quickly. I'll start with fixing a hole in the basement wall. It's not James-related; we had to open the wall one winter when the pipes froze, and since it was in the laundry room and nobody would see it I just never bothered to fix it. Now I'll do it as a practice piece, before I do the repair job in the front hall.
