Hi guys, I am Not a taper (mud guy ) I'm more of deck, kitchen, bath.Guy.
I took a basement job and I hung all the rock looks great.
My problem now is I can't seem to find a guy to tape it.
I keep getting the job is to small I have no time.

Any input.

Do it yourself?

If you can hang it, you can tape it.

I agree with cole.....Tape it yourself.

Just for input, I'll tell ya how I teach a maggot to tape, I make him sand behind himself. If he can't get it after that, he isn't cut out for any part of this biz.

I was think of doing it myself I have done smaller jobs but not this big.

But what the heck I might just give it a shot.

I'm in southern NH Rambone! I think CT might be a little too far for me to hike for 35 sheets though. Sorry man.
