What are the relative pros/cons of tackling drywall/taping job
in little pieces vs. the whole shebang? E.g., I can hang board,
tape, skim coat, sand, etc. in a room-at-a-time before proceeding
on to the next room. In that way, only having to protect the
contents of one room at a time and still keep the majority of
the house livable.
Or, get everything taped and then go on a sanding frenzy -- making
one huge mess but then it's *done*
. This, however, means covering
EVERYTHING and living under plastic for a while.
The only kit I think would be affected is for applying corner bead.
But, I think that's cheap enough that it could be purchased and
How does the strategy change when it comes to tackling the ceilings?
