I have been the carpenters helper to a remodeler for only a few months. Our most recent job was to tear out a 75+ year old bathroom and put in a brand new one from the floor joists up. It’s a small full bath on the first floor of a very old farm house. Our new bathroom is dressed up with princeton mouldings, rosetts, and four feet of wanescotting. When my boss said he doesn’t paint, I jumped at the opportunity for a little extra work. After reading the recent priming article in FHB#161 I find myself wondering now if I should use a PVA primer on our drywall and wanescotting, or choose something else. This bath is only 41/2′ x 9′ although we have installed a new fan, moisture is definatly a consideration. There will also be a 7′ x 17″ set of built in pine shelving to be primed and painted. I need some advice so my boss and the homeowner are not dissapointed by oppened seams in the long run.
