    What would you have done if you saw those two in the woods?! We tried our best to portray just how terrified we were in that moment… at the end of the day we know a few things for sure
    1. Drywall is hard
    2. There are people in the woods 😂
    3. Friends make everything better and show up at the right time even if they spook you (love you Tal & Mads) 💛
    4. Play Angry Birds Use my link to install Angry Birds Friends for FREE: rov.io/vanwives and enjoy popping those piggies!

    You did great for your first time! I personally prefer the mesh kind of tape instead of paper tape, as it's self-sticking (you only have to put mud on top) so it's easier to apply. (I also feel it creates a stronger bond structurally.) So that might be something to try on a future project to see what you like working with best. But honestly, everybody has to mud and sand and mud again to get a really smooth finish. That's just how it goes, so don't feel bad. One actually important thing, though: It's considered best practice when drywalling to stagger your rows of drywall so you don't have four corners meeting like you see at 10:30. They should be more like a typical brick pattern where the seam for one row is in the middle of the next row's sheet. The seams are the weakest points, so staggering them is stronger, and it makes it easier to hide those seams when mudding. It's how the pros do it! :)

    I always enjoy watching your adventures but this video, especially when your friends showed up... made me sob. You are living a dream of mine being able to do what you're doing. The love between you, the energy, the joy, the willingness to try things you've never done before just blows me away. To have friends that just show up like that and double the love and energy! I wept! I can't call it jealousy because I'm happy for all of you. I just wish I were forty years younger, not ruled by fear and still had friends who were alive. I know you have troubles and problems like everyone else, but you have a special person to share that with. It's really too late for me now but I try to do little new things in my life today as my physical and mental conditions will allow. You inspire me. I really hope that when you go to bed at night, spent and exhausted... that you never forget how blessed you are to live this life, even with all its ups and downs and stay grateful! I wish you all the best and hope that you inspire others to do what you are doing! Smallest footprint on this glorious planet! Holy crap... Sorry for the book😱.. I'm just a lonely old lady that's really emotional right now. Keep up the awesome work! 💕

      OK mama Berta here who did her She Shed help with drywall. My son told me to take a sponge damp, not soaking, but you can smooth out your drywall mud and make it smooth. Knock down the big chunks but you don’t really have to sand, makes such a mess to do that, so do it the girl way, no he worked in a hospital, and that’s what they did. Also a second coat of mud on your joints makes it look better.

    Ive been binging this for the last two weeks and loving every minute of it. 😅 I have a real estate business, and if I could throw my 2 cents in. When you do drywall, always get bigger sheets than you need. I think you used 8ft sheets. If you used 10ft, then you wouldn't have to do any butt joints, which are a massive pain in the a$$! Also, when mudding, apply more than you need, its always better to build up and sand down rather than have divits and bubbles. You got this.

    You two are awesome!! I used to help an ex on drywall jobs. My favorite was mud and tape. A trick I did was not to apply first coat of mud too thick and when applying the tape, get the one end started and while running the tape, run the scraper down it as you go. This helps to smooth and push out air bubbles. Good luck!! Hugs to the pups!!🌝🌝

    I think the cruel thing about drywall is that it starts off deceptively easy and just gets fiddler and fiddler. And it’s hard for your increased understanding later on to make up for/fix the mistakes you made early on (mistakes you didn’t even realize you were making, of course). But I think you’ll be glad you did it in the end.

    Ladies, I had a finish construction company years ago and I hung tons of drywall and taped and mudded thousand of screw holes and seams and I have to say you are impressive as hell. I like how well you two work together and how you take the time to study each aspect of the job you plan to do. Impressive. I remember when I was much younger having to hang 5/8" x 4 ft x15 ft dry sheet rock over my head by myself in a garage. I had to use aluminum stilts to get the height I needed. That was not fun. Anyway, you ladies are doing a great job. I love to watch the two of you tackle some challenging projects and complete each one of them. Keep up the good work.

    Some quick tips for next time: The paper on the ends will just pull off in one long strip. Buy yourself a drywall screw setter bit so the screw doesn't punch through. Only $5 or so for a 3-pack. Use fibre tape, it is stronger but it also is sticky so it will stay in place on the ceiling. If you want a future crack free job, invest in some Durabond 90. Use it to fill the joints and then a thin layer on the fibre tape. It is more work to sand so do not leave excess on the panel. Think of it as a concrete foundation. If you have to sand it, use coarse sandpaper. Finish with regular drywall compound.

    I'm pretty sure that drywall taping & mudding gave me carpal tunnel. I haven't finished the video yet, but a tip that saved me a lot of problems was that you can use a damp sponge mop to "sand" the seams. It's not going to work best in every situation, but the dust is insidious and anything you can do to keep down the dust is worth it. Also I learned that it can be really tricky to tell whether your seams are actually flat and not noticeably bulging until you put paint on because the paint will reflect light in a way that joint compound doesn't. My first room had noticeable seams in the end that weren't at all obvious before I painted.

    You guys remind me of myself, pro DIY'ers. I have a couple tips for taping. Tape goes on a lot better if you mix some water into your mud on your hawk before you apply it. For taping you want the mud at a consistency where it pretty much slides off the knife if you were to hold it perpendicular with the ground. Mud the seam, apply the tape. Then run your knife along the tape with some more mud while also pushing some of the mud out from under the tape but don't push it all out. only run your knife long ways though not side to side. Go back over it without anymore mud a few times, you want to actually remove some of the mud on the first coat, the idea of the first coat is just to get the tape wet enough to adhere to the drywall. With mudding alot of the time less is more. And you can sand and do a couple more thin coats after each one dries. Check out Vancouver carpenter he has a lot of very good how to drywall videos. Good luck.

    It doesn't matter if you hang the ceiling or walls first, it's a preference. Personally I like to hang the walls first because most walls are 8ft. and if you hang the ceiling first you'll have to trim all your wall sheets which are 4ft wide. to account for the thickness of you sheets. Also just an FYI. for future reference your sheets should be staggered. Typically you'd start with a full sheet and then the next row would be a half sheet. Looks good though, not trying to be critical just thought I'd mention it.

    Love you guys! This was such a fun vid to watch. Drywall is very hard especially ceilings. Whatever you do don't paint your ceilings with high gloss paint. It shows every imperfection in your mudding. Peeps in the wood. I would encourage friends to never do this wo a warning that they are coming. Seriously, this could get dangerous in either you think it's them again but it's not, or it is them and you don't think is. And yes, working on house projects with friends is way better than just working by yourself or with your partner. As my Dad used to say, "Many hands make for light work."

    I’ve been watching you two for several years and I have come to the decision that y’all can do anything that you put your mind to. Also have you considered that a Bigfoot could be your neighbor?? Just a thought. 😊

    The first time taping and mudding is always a pain. It's when you get to make the mistakes that you learn from for the rest. Glad you're doing the bedroom first.
    Love your closing message today. Just what I needed to hear. Love you, Pack!

    Porter is such an amazing friend, checking in with you guys ☺️. Yes, you two can do the taping! I have to be honest, when you first started putting up the wood walls, I thought it would look better with drywall walls and wood ceilings, but I was wrong! It’s looking great!!!!! Great job you two! I stand corrected, great job you 4!!!

    It helps to wet the tape in a bucket of water then kind of squeege the water off with your fingers and see how much easier it is to get it flat without bubbles.

    Hi Girls, haven't written in a while and as usual your doing a great job. I just started watching your Video and sense something is going to be very disturbing and uneasy to you both. Short quick story. I lived in the woods many years ago, during the "Peace, Love, and Rock n Roll era" and never thought one minute of any threat to me and my home, but one day, 2 very ugly and disturbing guys decided to break in to my place while I was sleeping and attack, tied me up and stole everything that meant anything to me. Now days, it's been happening more often than ever. Ladies!! It's time for you guys to consider buying a "Weapon" to protect yourselves and learn how to use it well. Your dogs can only warn you of the threat but can't solely protect you if there are more than one predator... You guys have been very smart to this point. Don't be foolish, GO BUY A Gun!!! Love you all.

    The secret sauce on the tape is you soak it water, you measure it to length Cut it put in a bucket of water for about 20 minutes the same amount of time it takes you to first layer of mud then you put the wet tape up and mud over the top of it. Leave it as thin as possible. You can always come back a second time and another layer is easier than Sanding and use the widest knife possible on seams

    I've had my own business painting and drywalling for many years and every time nothing comes out as planned! A lot depends on temperature and humidly which plays a huge part when mudding! As novices you both are fantastic, you did your homework!

    Here’s what I learned after watching your videos for a very long time, never ever bet against the two of you🤔🤔!! another fabulous yet , funny video, and may I add, a very successful job and video !! I actually show some of your videos to my grandchildren who are of age now but barely, to never say never. And because they see you do it they don’t give up so easily. Can’t wait till next week to see what the two of you are up to !! 🥂🍾☺️✌🏼😎🥇🥇🥇

    Of course you can do this! It will be rough at first but you’ll pick it up quickly. Right now I’m spooked about the person in the woods. That would really freak me out. Are there ANY neighbors close by? Are you armed?
