Help! Can't get drill bit through wall anywhere
Okay I need some help. I have tried in vain in several rooms in my house to hang curtain brackets above my windows at the height I want which is at the top of the walls. Everytime we try to do this we hit something really hard. DH gives up and puts the curtain rods way lower than i want. I am putting up my bedroom curtains and it happened again. So to cut to the chase and solve the mysterious material that is breaking drill bits and bending screws, I put a small hole in the dry wall and behind the dry wall is wood. Very, very dense wood. Must be some kind of beam. This is happening on the exterior perimeter of my house which was built in the fifites. House is brick on the outside with an large eaves added in the 80s with siding on them. The hard material is definitely wood. How do I drill through this toughest wood in the world and mount my curtains? Does anyone have any idea? There is about 10 inches above the windows that is drywalled. The eaves hit he windows at the top of the window so the inside walls are higher than the eaves.
