When mudding and taping and finishing a seam - what should you do when an
outlet opening runs right next to it? Seems like it ruins the pull when you
have to swerve the knife out of the way to miss getting mud all over the
outlet or picking up drywall grit into your mud when the knife passes over
I do the same as Rich says. I put a strip of masking tape over the
plug or switch or pull them. You could pull the plug or switch, lay
tape over the box and mud/tape as if it weren't there. Pull the tape
off after each application. Never tried that but it should work.
