Flats, butts, then corners. Or Butts, flats then corners. I prefer to do the flats first because i can float the butts in to the flats better than cutting into the butts running the flats

Re: Taping A House????????

I always start in the same room. Run the flats, when you are finished with all the flats in the house. Then coat the tops of my outside corners, and butts off stilts stopping at the flat. Try to float the corner/butts into to the flat and not cut into or make lines. Then do the bottoms the same coming up to the flat. Then the tops of the inside angles, then the bottoms. But always take the same route you started with doing the flats. Hope this info helps.
