We are installing/finishing drywalli and applying a knockdown texture to this oceanfront home in Indialantic, Florida. The homeowner's requested us to build them an arched opening with bullnose corners between thier living room and kitchen. Let me know what you think.

    Would have liked to see the framing, that's the interesting part. Arch looks great!

    Thanks guy's. I added a photo of the framing (I have more but you can only have 8 photos of projects). I pretty much add the framing after I have the two radius's cut and installed (see photo).

    Looks great. what did you use for the 3 1/2" part of the arch, I've heard of wetting sheet rock, bending it a little at a time. I've also heard of using 1/8" masonite. What do you suggest?

    Thanks Paul, I never would have thought to do it in that order but it makes a lot more sense.
