Thank you. GC supplied the boards, tear away bead and insulation. We supplied all other materials, hung, added the insulation, and finish (such as it is). Also hung & finished ~2 ft 'angled' walls in hall & kitchen areas, and repaired/patched the existing outside walls in both conf rms & one wall in the outer offc. space all along the bottom 6-8" of the walls.

Kodie, I commend you for being forthright with this drywall situation. A lot, I mean a lot of guys would have skipped town and never looked back. Hey, we've all been there. Took on a job a little out of our skill range, got in over our heads........it happens. I know as a painter, I have taken on drywall jobs that were out of my skill range. Heck, I've taken on commercial paint projects that really weren't meant to be done by a one-man operation. Again, I commend you for "owning it" and for working out a solution with the GC and the client.

You're spending too much time looking for opinions on here.

Just go back and feather those joints.

Take your time when you are doing it.

When I was learning how to tape it was drummed into my head...

You can always add and build up easier than try and take down.

Thank you. I tried to be brutally honest here, knowing full well I'd get my ass handed to me. And yeah, I've been told that too - even the GC seemed to expect we would walk away. That's not how I do things.

I hope you don't think I've been sitting in front of this computer doing nothing. Out of courtesy and appreciation for others taking their time to post here, I've continued to respond. I've been in regular contact with the GC discussing options and they are considering which way they want to go. Thank you for your suggestion as well - that is one option - and yes, we'll be doing things very differently going forward.
