Half way through mudding the living room, dining and kitchen area (open concept), I have found the most challenging part of mudding is being a novice working alone. Missing is the comradery of having someone sharing the ups and downs of the experience.
Today, I have been taping and mudding the ceiling/wall joints. Although a neighbor had shown me the technique, it is up to me to remember all the details associated with doing it. Then there is the problem of picking a tool to do the job……my advisers have been men, some of their application techniques are difficult to maintain through out the application. The tools are cumbersome in my hands, but choosing a smaller tool is not as effect in achieving the optimum result.
