Absolutely we could do more than a few a day depending on the size of course.

It's a California production thing.

Paid by the roll?... No wonder why every time i do work on track homes built in the 70s to 90s around san diego all the wall joints are bulging out and the lids are sagging. Obviously you didnt get paid by the gallon of mud and the hangers got paid by the sheet and not the nails!

Why would getting paid by the roll have anything to do with bulging wall joints?

Sloppy joints or cheap mud i always figured. Why else do they all have that sagging look?

I see it all over the place. Older homes have random cracks but track homes always have bulging joints on factory edges. Blame the framers i suppose. Fresh wood contracts as it dries?
