Yesterday our buddy coordinating the drywall finisher called to say Saturday is the day. Woo-hoo!
On his last visit he had left us with a short list of necessary supplies to get started:
- eight 8-foot pieces of metal corner bead,
- 300 feet (1 roll) of mesh tape,
- 3 bags of quick-set mud (it dries quicker than the pre-mixed buckets of mud we’d been using).
Charlie and I headed to our local ProBuild which basically carries all supplies needed for installing gypsum (dry wall).
We ordered and paid at the counter.
Then took our receipt to the warehouse where they loaded everything up in the car.
The whole transaction took less than 15 minutes.
Do you always use the big box stores or eschew them at times for specialists?
