Is this Latin correct? or Perhaps: How incorrect is this Latin?

I have been writing back and forth to a friend in Latin, very basic.
This is stretching it, but if someone could redirect me or correct me I would really appreciate it.
"Next week I will have hung all of the drywall."
"instrvero cvnctvs laminae gypsi hebdomas proxima "
instruero cunctus laminae gypsi hebdomas proxima
Oh man, on one hand I am so proud of myself for getting so much vocabulary (I have only been doing this on my own part time since March!) but I am just now getting the feel for how the parts are starting to work. The next few months are taking all of the vocabulary and trying to apply them using more complex structures.
Thoughts? Ideas? I thought it seemed best to use instrvere, because other words I know would call for a more complicated structure. Should I be using "laminae gypsum" instead?
At this point I am just stringing things together the best I can like a 4 year old trying to make the declensions feel right. This is just a little fun for us, so no pressure. I need them (not Cicero) to understand "sheets of drywall" and the general idea.
