The last time I finished a basement, I swore to myself I would hire out the drywall next time - however, this time I decided not to because it seemed like finding someone who could do the double drywall/green glue correctly could be difficult (lot of forum members warning about this), so I decided to do myself. - also pandemic- didn't want people in the house. At least this time my taping and mudding don't have to get to a regular interior finish. I think in my first drywall adventure, I spent 10% of my time hanging drywall, 90% of my timing taping, mudding, sanding, remudding, resanding, remudding, resanding, forever until I was happy with it. With this room, i'm hoping to do only 2 rounds on each seam and call it a day since it will all be covered. I also feel like I know how to apply mud better than I did 15 years ago so there isn't as much work sanding it down.Nice progress! Drywall is tough. It was one of the most, probably the most, time consuming and labor intensive part for me. I'm finishing the rest of my basement and I'm seriously thinking about hiring it out.
