I am no artist. But in doing the dry walling in my basement, I have a newfound respect for those that do it.

I have great respect for those who do it well. I have zero respect for the self-important hack who continuously told me what an arteest he was, and how every other drywall guy in town was a talentless amateur. I ended up firing him and hiring somebody else to repair at least some of his screwups.

Gary, I did the same thing with a guy 12 years ago who was drywalling for my mom. Suddenly I became the drywall contractor. I was pretty good at covering screw holes and taping seems by the end of that summer lemme tell you...

There's definitely skill to it, and equally important is to get good framing up first. Good drywallers like to work with good framers so that you aren't trying to fix their screwups after, because, well, you can't. Drywall will fit to the frame you put up. Good mudders like to work with good drywallers for the same reason.

If you're a nice drywaller, you leave apology notes to the mudders. Taken from my basement build thread:



In this case the mudder is actually the drywallers boss and the owner of the company, so it's nice to be polite. Wink

I had a similar situation. The guy I fired had framed in a 45 degree corner with nothing to screw the drywall to. I had to fake it with LOTS of MUD.
