As little as I am working right now, I could use a long road trip.
Come on Freetown, scrape the old mud off the trowel and sand up the hod.
I once gave a new guy to my area a chance to show his stuff on a house I was building. He came in with a friend from S. Maine, strictly a hanger, and he was a finisher. Came from OOB, Canadian French decent. Said he was moving to get away from abusive, work until you drop father. His dad was a drywall contractor and this guy didn't finish high school, just went to work.
Anyhoo, they hung every sheet in a 52x26 ranch style house and the walk out basement wall in just 5 hours!
Then he turned around and taped and finished better then I had ever seen in a few days. He was a wizard with a drywall tool of any sort. The most amazing thing was there was none on the floor to clean up and very little sanding.
He was not a self starter however and soon stopped showing up on jobs and would not take care of business. I blamed that on his abusive father, but he sure taught him to tape and mud drywall!
If they can't make money, they won't do it. And I have learned that I don't want to tape and mud behind someone that has no clue about hanging. I saw some guys using skilsaws to cut the drywall once. All the paper on the cut edges were ragged and had to be cut back with a knife. IT was a huge house on the water and I spent the entire first week just going around and prepping the bad spots for the guys taping. Luckily, we were being paid by the hour!
