We figured it was about time to start mudding the drywall. It’s a nice task, not too difficult, and Heather and I can work on it together. Covering up the screws is easy, taping the seams and corners is somewhat more difficult, but we will figure it out. The trick is not to put too much joint compound (mud) on, so you don’t have much to sand off. Better to add more thin layers and get to where you need it than add too much and have to sand it all back down.
We figured that we would start on this wall that is behind the fridge/freezer as 2/3’s of this wall will be covered by pantries and cabinets, as well as the fridge/freezer – so it is a good place to practice before we start doing walls that everyone will be able to see!
