Arriving early Saturday morning and for the rest of the day, then for about 7 hours on Sunday with his buddy, Manuel has taped and mudded our exposed drywall.
He mixed up his own joint compound in addition to using some bucket of pre-mixed .
I think I love the smell of drying wallboard mud.
Finally I’m beginning to see that our rooms will not remain unfinished shells for the next 5 years.
At the end of the day we were talking about what the conservatory might be called in Spanish and came up with “La Sala del Sol”, SunRoom. The plan is for Manuel to return next Saturday (he works during the week) and I think all the drywall will be finished .
Next step: priming and painting. That’s on us.
What chores do you hire out? Has it changed with age?
