Drywall - Part 2

The drywall is now finished.  After all the boards were installed, the team started to "mud & tape" them:  apply corner beans, tape seams and then apply several coats of drywall compound to each joint.  This took about a week.  They were seeking such a perfect finish that the last two days were spent holding lights about two inches from the walls, looking for imperfections to fill and sand.  The two brothers did an amazing job.

Next up is priming the walls and ceiling.
