The home owner hired some electricians to add more light into the kitchen. They needed access to the attic and one of them fell on an existing lamp pushing it through the ceiling. They finished the kitchen job but refused to repair the hallway damage. This is a simple job were the light was removed and the ceiling was repaired.
This post shows the six steps to repair a ceiling hole.
Step 1: Fig.1 and fig.2 shows the hole in the ceiling that needs to be repaired. A partial layer of sheet rock was applied but was not flushed with the ceiling.
Step 2: Fig.3 shows that a tarp was placed over the rugged floor to prevent joint compound and drywall dust from damaging the floor.
