Week #27: Jan 8 - 14 Taping/Mudding

Last week was a great week! They finished hanging the sheetrock and I got an inspection Friday afternoon. Everything went very smoothly. We used 5/8" sheetrock on the Great Room ceiling and 1/2" on all the walls.

For the shower and bathtub walls we used cement backer board with the 30lb felt paper behind it for added protection.

With all the drywall up, the house looks so much brighter; maybe I didn't need that skylight in the kitchen??
Next up, the tapers and mudders. It's all about having the right equipment and tools!

This guy's got a tool that dispenses tape and mud all in one stroke.

Because of the cold weather, it's taking the mud a little longer to dry out, so they need to wait a day or two in between new applications of mud. But Juan's assured me we can start painting on 1/26.
