My late father-in-law used to say “four inch putty” whenever he’d make a mistake with a measurement or a cut. Well, I may need a truckload of four inch putty. I’ve been installing drywall in my whole house remodel. Between the substandard framing, and my substandard workmanship, I’m now faced with mudding and taping multiple gaps and a few unsightly butt joints. There are some places where the corners at the ceiling have tapered gaps that get as wide as an inch. In fact, I don’t think there’s a perfect corner anywhere in the house. This is 1200 sq. ft. and I’m redoing walls and ceilings throughout. I’ve only put about half of it up so far, but I’d like to go ahead and mud, tape and sand what’s in place before installing the rest of it. Any products or techniques you can recommend for dealing with sloppy drywall installation would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help.
