    Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20so today we're going to take the time toteach you everything you need to knowabout installing drywall how why iswhat's to do the right products theright tools the right materials so firstof all let's just talk drywall turkeydrywall basically dust pressed betweenpaper you have two edges on drywall youhave the factory edge or the butt jointWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40and then you have the other edge whichis a tapered edge no max if your cameracan pick that up but it rides a certaindepth and then it has a little scoophere and the idea being when you put twoof these taper joints together all youneed is one paper tape joint a fill coatand then a finish coat nice and simpleyou always have a gorgeous joint theWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00more joints you can have that have thepaper on them the less work and theeasier it is to finish every time youput two buttons together you've got togo through another paper taping there ittakes another coat of application and ittakes a little bit of trick so you'vegot to have a lot more skill to do thatkind of joint fortunately for us thisWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20room here it's pretty small so we'rejust gonna go with all full sheets ofdrywall this is 3/8 thick this is halfan inch it's just the depth here theidea is when you put two sheets togetheryou can tape that with only three stepsnice and simple when you have reallylong walls drywall on that comes 89stends 12 if the wall is longer than 12then you're gonna have a joint it'sWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40gonna be a butt joint and that takes alittle bit more skill when it comes tothe taping and how to finish that we'llshow you that soon but for today we'lltalk about how to install this board nowthat's pretty flexible doesn't have alot of strength to it so you need tohave enough support and behind the wallto hold this stuff you can't just frameWatch at: 01:40 / 02:0024 inches on Center and use regulardrywall you're better to go with the 16inch so basically your tools are simplyyou need a knife you need tape measure Dto drill Phillips bit but we're mostpeople and this is interesting make themistake they go to the store and theybuy their screws and then box saysdrywall screws so they grab itWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20there's a lot of different links andthere's two different threads so what Iwant you to know is the fine threadscrew is for metal stud framing mostlyfor commercial don't recommend metalframing in your house you want to buythe coarse threaded screw it's a widerthread you'll grab would better the fineWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40thread screw in wood does tend to end uppopping out on you because it doesn'thave a wide enough thread to really grabthe wood I see guys making this mistakeall the time sometimes as ignorancesometimes it's laziness now here you canbuy your screws in all kinds ofdifferent links the secret is this youWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00take the thickness of your drywall halfan inch you multiply that by one and ahalf that's three quarters of an inchyou add those two numbers together thatgives you the length of your screw justremember whatever you're screwing intoyour screw has to be one and a halftimes longer in the material you'rescrewing into than what you're attachingWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20to the wall so you got a half inchmaterial you need inch and a quarter ifyou're in total installing type X or 5/8drywall you got to go to one andfive-eighths if you're installing twolayers you go to two inch somecommercial applications we can havescrews up to two and a half inch but usethe right length of screw so that you'renot accidentally screwing right intoWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40somebody else's wire that's keyelectricians run their wiring at acertain depth of the wall to guaranteethere won't be contact if your screwstoo long and you pierce a wire you paythe electrician's bill it's not hisfaultso when it comes to cutting tools foryour drywall you really have three basicoptions one is the knife the standardWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00and when you're cutting drywall theknife really simple you want to just usethe tip of the knife cut the paper it'sjust really delicate you don't have todig all the way in if you get past thepaper you're gonna be cutting into thatpowder it'll dull your blade so fast andthen it's dangerous because a dull knifeis so the one that's going to cut youthe other cutting tool I like to use asWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20the Rotozip mine has a little bit biggerknot on it here so my my bit is widerthan usualjust turn it on I should mention thereason this wall is up already isbecause we had spray foam in thisbuilding so we wanted to cover that upfor fire safety sake so we have a windowhere I'm just gonna cut the majority ofWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40this window out and demonstrate how thistool operates[Music]now it makes a little bit of dust it hasa nasty screeching sound so people whodon't like that nails on the chalkcurtain might bother you here we godaylight this tool is incrediblyWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00effective around plug boxes because youcan stick it in run into the box jumpthe other side and they just follow thecontour always use this tool counterclockwise and then you'll have greatsuccess now if you don't have a rotas itthe only other option is good old sweatblood and tears using one of theseWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20little drywall sawsthese can be real effective the teethare going to different directions so becareful if you cut yourself with thisyou cannot stitch yourself back togetherit'll be a nasty mess and it'll takeweeks to heal so before you start yourdrywall installation the basic processis your sealing first then the wallsthere's no real science to it other thanWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40the fact that when you're doing yourjoints if the wall board is pushed upand get into the ceiling it closes upthe gap it gets rid of all those littleerrors that you have with those roomsbeing on square when you're cutting thewall so you can have a little gap aroundthe outside of the room it'll cover withthe walls panels afterwards it's notreally supporting anything you'rescrewing it to the ceiling after all sowhat we want to do is inspect yourWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00ceiling before you close you're lookingfor a few major things one let's goright up to the ceiling here match oneyour heat runs is there insulationbetween your wires and your heat runsthis is brutally important in our regionwe have it in our electrical code thatthere must be insulation between thewire and heat sources has to notWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20overheat the wires and cause firesecondly make notes of where your lightfixtures are your smoke alarms your heatruns these are all things that you wantto make sure that you take care ofbefore you get started because we canuse our Rotozip tool to cut around theboxes and all that sort of thing butonly once the fixtures are removed soWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40there's lightis in the way really simple we know thepower is off to this oh we got to do isjust back off the screws and you couldWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00use a knife or a screwdriver sometimes Ijust cut the wires because there's lotsof length here and I know a lectureshipcan wire this back up again for me noproblem alright so we're just gonna pullthat loose and we're gonna pull thisloose alright I always wrap these thingsWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20up before you put them back in the boxjust in case somebody hits that lightswitch by accidentokay so what we have here is aninterconnect that smoke alarm co2 alarmyou can tell it's interconnected becauseit has a ton of wires coming in and outof this bad boy as soon as I take thisoff it's gonna start making a horriblenoise so we're gonna wait until we'reright ready to put the drywall up justso we don't lose our sanity so I'm justWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40inspecting the ceiling and I see I got acouple of nails sticking down this isn'texactly a hammer but it'll do the jobokay and we're missing one piece ofstrapping on the outside so before weput up our seal I'm gonna make sure wehave strapping the same we want to woodevery 16 inches on a wall you want toWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00have your strapping on your ceilingabout the same now it's very narrow it's1 by 3 is what I'm using so usually whenyou're strapping if you screw the middlethe strapping will dry out and twist alittle bit so you want to do is you wantto put two screws in just to make sureyou're getting both sides so thatWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20twisting motion doesn't happen and I'llalternate that every other strappingjust go in the middlesimplicity um because we dry it installour drywall contrary to the strappingwe're not concerned about whether it'sperfectly on 16 some guys I see they tryto make sure that their wood isperfectly centered so they can installWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40their wood and on the joint that's a lotof extra work if you just measure offyour room and put your drywall theopposite direction goes up a lotso here's a Renault tip for you whenyou're screwing near the end of a pieceof spruce like this it's really thinstart your bit put the drill on reverseand push and see you see smoke did youWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00see that max when you see smokeyou've cauterize that wound if you justdrive a screw and a piece of strappinglike this it'll split on you now we'redone we're ready to install our drywallonly thing left to do now is carry itdown here from the chart so let's go getour 10 foot sheets no time to wasteWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20time is moneydude that's a little treacherous Max hasgot the camera rolling so that when wewipeout not if he has it on film so theWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40system here when you're putting up aceiling need to remember that you'regonna have a half-inch drywall in eitherside coming up so you've got lots ofroom there for variance so instead ofworry about if the room is square or notwe're gonna do is we're going to takethe actual measurement take it half aninch off and then when we install we'lltry to split the differencein the gap and put a quarter inch oneach side so we're actual measurement isWatch at: 09:40 / 10:001:18 and 3/4so we'll install it with 18 and aquarter that's a 10 foot sheet ofdrywall let's go get that cut if you'reenjoying these videos subscribe to thechannel hit the like button I'll mostimportantly comment on the videos by allWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20means or a suggestion of video you'dlike to see let us know we'd love to bein touchwelcome to our video of how to installdrywall in a ceiling to make it looklike this using this and you can do itall by yourself so your standard sheetof drywall is 4 feet wide so you want tomeasure off 4 feet which is here andWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40then do an eyeball so I'm gonna go rightthrough the middle of my smoke detectorso unfortunately for the first sheet I'mgonna have to take that offI'm also covering up my heat run herenow this one is strapped down won't moveout of the way so my drywall is gonnahave to bend over it and cut it outright awayso I wanted to do is get a measurement IWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00want to measure to the middle of thisso I'm 38 inches off so I make a mark 38inches and then I measure from here 39whatever way you want to market is fineand then after we get the drywallscrewed up a little bit we'll get thecutting tool and zip that it okay soWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20I've got my four foot mark now this isjust a little trick that I've gottenhere if you set a construction screw andnot into your hand just pass your fourfoot mark I leave it hangingthree-quarters of an inch right thereWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40now when I come in with my drywall I cancome up I can hold the drywall the onehand the other hand I can put on thisbrace and you can see that that's gonnacarry lots of weight that frees up myhand I can grab my drill load somescrews put a few in nice and simple ifyou are working alone and you have toWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00drywall your ceiling this is a greattrick strap one of those suckers upthere was some construction screws andthen we have this block up here in themiddle of the ceiling okayagain construction screw all the wayWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20through attach it just past your floorfoot mark this enables you to actuallylift the sheet up put it in walk up theladder with ithold it with one hand and spin the blockover on top all right now I'm gonna dodemonstration keep it nice and tightWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40so what I do is I like to set up infront of my ladder and then I just takethis sheet lift it uphoist it up over your headwhoo once you're there you're gonna letthat lumber there do all the carryingthe reason you want to leave this niceWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00and loose so that anything that's in theway you have a little room now we'regood to goI can pull out the drill screw this badboy in when you're taking off your smokedetector we have to take off two thingsone is the body of this and it has alittle pinch on it you take this littleplate and you just wiggle this offWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20that's how they've done it this onerequires you know pride and pull okayand then disengage this mounting platepush everything up inside the box luckyWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40for us it's right on the edge so we'llbe able to see it when we install thedrywall if it's buried inside theceiling again make your measurementsmark it on the wall I always cut alwayscut as you go don't rely on yourmeasurements to save you sooner or latersomeone's gonna forget to cut a hole andWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00you'll do all your taping and thepriming and you'll be like oh yeahwhere's that box so always cut a jig ohso now we're gonna install this as atwo-man application once again verysimilarwhen you're installing a piece ofdrywall the same size as the room it'sWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20difficult to just lift it up over yourhead like I did in the demonstration soreally what you want to do is you wantto lay one end flat and lift the otherend up go ahead there's always one guythat's high and one guy that's lookedbecause the distance in the room fromthere to there now the room is almost 11Watch at: 14:20 / 14:40feet long when it's in square it's onlyten feet long Susan if that corner it's11 feet longnow what you do is you pay attention toyou're in and you keep it as tight tothat quarter as you can okay and squareand we slide it in together all rightnow we might even have room here to getWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00this above our drywall I don't knowprobably not there's my third pair ofhands the little block comes in handyeven if you've got two guys working so Ihave a smoke detector and we've got aheat run and we don't want to put anyWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20screws anywhere near that stuff causeit'll end up breaking right through okayand that would be just a waste of timeso I got a heat run over here so I'mgonna first screws gonna go on thistrapping out of the way a little bitthere we goI don't want to get anywhere near myWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40Heat all right and then[Music]on each side using about three or fouron each side of the sheet that's enoughto hold it in place we get the cuttingtool right away all right Catherinecutting to 38 and then 39Watch at: 15:40 / 16:00[Music]let's get a little technical guyRhoda's it[Music]Watch at: 16:00 / 16:19want to set the guard so that we'regoing to cut it properly[Music]Watch at: 16:19 / 16:40[Applause][Music]there you go okay so our box here ismounted up really too high for whatWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00we're doing here for finishing theceiling and I've used flurry screws aswell that's cool let's pull these wiresout of here out of the way well it canlots of wires all right okay now we justWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20want to drop our box a little bit sothat our mounting screws will actuallywork we can put these on first the otherWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40mounting screw thanks buddy yeah let'sWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00get all these push back in first that'llbe a nightmare try to do that afterwardswhen you're putting these back in checkthe pin position there's a couple ofholes and then a big space in anotherhole make sure you line them up properlyWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20put it in backwards the first time youdon't get the try again we're gonnaleave that hang and until our othersheet goes in so kind of away but weshould be fine depending on howcomfortable you are when your drywallwith sealing with the drawing itstraight line it can be a good habitWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40mark off where the wood is first if youfind it necessary I generally don't dothatbut I know if some guys live by that oneno also a good habitI'll just go five screws if you're doingWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00renovation at your own home and you gofour screws you probably won't have aproblem but if you get sloppy and lazyboth these things one of these daysmaybe you'll be working in a job siteand it'll be commercial drywall andthere's fire rating involved and if thisinspector only sees four screws and asheet of drywall he'll fail yourWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20installation believe it or not there's abuilding code for just about everythingso this one here is 12 inches to thecenter the trick here is first of allyou just need to get it up all rightfirst before you do anything just get itup into place if it's a two-minuteWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40assembly it's the same thing the otherguys in charge of holding the weight andnot letting it bounce around becausewhile is jiggling it'll pop off thescrews if you're by yourself you'regonna need about six or eight of thoselittle wooden blocks that I showed youthat can be quite precarious now we alsohave an electrical box in the middle ofthe room so again we want to screw itaround the outside perimeter I like toWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00use my head in this kind of situationwhich is why I'm going a little bald onthe top now the goal here is make surethat the drywall is tight together youdon't want a gap here it just causes awhole lot extra mud and a lot extradrying you know where your straps arebecause that's where your screws areleft off so you can get the first threeWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20screws in here without even movingaround and then all I got to do shift myweight to hold that don't be jugglingaround there you're not allowed to moveyou just gotta feel the burn once I gotWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40a few screws on my side like a goodneighbor I'll go over and put a couplein his - sooner or later the lactic acidwill start to burnWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00[Applause]so in this situation the box for theelectrical is really recessed in theceiling it's on the original joist notthis traffic not a concern theelectrician is going to come back andWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20put the fixture up what you can do is hecan buy a half inch extender it screwsto that box and brings it down to aheight where it closes off the gap it'sgood for fire separation but it's alsogood for mounting things I'd like to usethe Box extender instead of just usingreally long screws just call meold-fashioned I'd like to have thesegaps closed up just in case if you'reWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40enjoying these videos subscribe to thechannel hit the like button but mostimportantly comment on the videos by allmeans or a suggestion of video you'dlike to see let us know we'd love to bein touch thanks for joining us todaytoday we're going to cover all the tipsand tricks in drywall in 101 how to cutitscore it snap it break it make it lookWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00beautifulalright so let's talk measure ah it'seasy to get the measurement of thelength especially have two people butthe secret here is you need to measureat the ends in the middle and at theother end again so that you know how outWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20of square the room is and the transferthat measurement on the drywall so thatwhen you bring it up here all your rightmeasurements are in the right place thereason I want to measure the middle aswell is because I know the drywallstraight but I don't know if the wall isstraight this might actually be it allscrewed together to a 2x4 that has awarp in it and I'm gonna have a curvedWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40wall and I won't be able to see it fromherethere's 22 and 3/4 so what we're gonnado is give ourselves a little bit of abreak and we'll go 22 and a half knowingthat the wall will cover the gap themiddle is very consistent 22 and 3/4 WowWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00the freaky thing here is the outsidewall in this wall we're pre-existingfrom the Builder would this be the firstsquare room like ah nope all right it'sclosed story two and a half big surpriseWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20here's the other tool that I forgot tomention you're gonna need this is adrywall square T Square aluminum justleaving the back your truck it'll lastforever don't abuse it though you wantto make sure to stay square there's thistool is fabulous I've seen a lot of guysthere's a lot of different ways in therecutting but what I like to use is thissquare because it makes my life easy myWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40measurement from my ceiling drywall is112 and 7/8 all I do is run over to thetape and when I hit the spot right I'mdone I don't even need the mark on theboard just take out my knife keep theblade short remember you're just cuttingWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00the paperdon't do anything to extraneous here andthen lift up the corner break it step inbehind always keeping your hands awayfrom your cutting area there we gothat's how to cut drywall 101 ourWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20ceiling is also gonna get cut at twentytwo and three eighths that's the widththat we're gonna use now the fact that Ican cut it continuous all the way acrossis awesome because I get to cheat thisparticular tools numbers running up anddown both sides so a full sheet ofdrywall all you have to do is follow upWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40to where it says 22 and three-eighthsand then you can set your bladeon the edge of the the edge of thissquare and then push the tip into thepaper and then with your left handsliding across the drywall pulling withWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00the right hand mark the whole sheettogether at the same time done a littlebit of a pop very very funds from HappyDays now the deceit on the bottom is theone that I'm just using here so I don'twant to set it on the ground so I set itWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20on my foot and again I'm only cuttingthe paper on the back side when theybadges these knives if you can't reachjust extend the blade and that's thepiece from my ceilinglet's just go over a few tips and trickshere and how to cut drywall using yourWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40knife first of all you know what yourblade extended too far if your blade isreally extended then you start cuttingyour blade will actually Bend can warpand you'll end up cutting like ans-curve so you keep your blade shortyou'll cut straight that helps numbertwo let's say it's gonna draw out a cutWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00of our imaginary cut here okay so we'recutting around a box alright and Iwanted to cut that you can't snap thatso one of these lines needs to be cutwith a saw so traditionally what guyswill do is they'll take their saw outand they'll start cutting that line okayWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20and they're jiggling around and fightingwith itthe way you cut with a saw simple littlepressure lots of movementthe faster you go with the sod theeasier it is and you don't risk break-inyour board the other thing you can dobecause it's only drywall it's notWatch at: 26:20 / 26:40finished carpentry cause you can takeyour mark and you can just cut down toit cut it across now here's the fun partI can just reach over I can see my lineunderneath the drywall place my knife onthe drywallI know exactly I'm gonna go so I lookedWatch at: 26:40 / 27:00to where I'm gonna go which is righthere I don't mean these straight toolsjust look to where I'm gonna go and yourbrain does all the work for you and thenyou can cut the backside as well and youhave a cut piece of drywallfind it necessary to trim the insidecorner a little bit that's itgood to go don't even need that saw ifWatch at: 27:00 / 27:20you're cutting a curve let's say you'recoming around a curved wall alright it'sthe same thing before a little bit of alittle bit of flex now let's go up theother side you put that flex can you seethat shadow yep like picks up the shadowWatch at: 27:20 / 27:40so when I go to a bit of flex I can seethe shadow and again I'm only cuttingthe paper so don't use too much pressureand you can cut a perfect curve cuttingacross the top and you're just takingoff a little bit let's say you're takingoff a half an inch let's draw the linefirst you can draw a line with it withWatch at: 27:40 / 28:00that square instead of trying to drawthat line with your knife in the squareat the same time really hard tomanipulate something really tighttogether same thing just draw the pencilline and you can follow the pencil linethis way by looking just a funnier knifeWatch at: 28:00 / 28:20or you can just look to where you'regoing[Music]now that's a horrible job what I wouldsuggest is if you're looking whereWatch at: 28:20 / 28:40you're going you know if you also haveto have in your peripheral and thenyou're pretty straight you have morethan one line in the same area you knowyour drywall is gonna be all confused ifyou have more than one cut because youscrewed up put the block on the cut linethat you want pinch itokay just beneath your line and you rollWatch at: 28:40 / 29:00it over all those cuts will come off atthe same time now let's say your scribedyou've got a scribe surface so yeah bitof a curve going on and you want to cutthat nice okay so you're holding yourWatch at: 29:00 / 29:20knife with your thumb and your fingeryou've actually got almost like a tripodgoing on you can squeeze the knife withyour hand and leave your thumb andfinger out now you've got incrediblestability you can just watch whereyou're going using your thumb and yourfinger like a tripod to maintain whereWatch at: 29:20 / 29:40you're going because it's a curveyowzers and just put that little bit ofa dimple in there create that shadowWatch at: 29:40 / 30:00now if you go if you have to do a holeand you don't have your hole sawfirst of all points your finger you candraw a pretty decent circle here alrightthere's your hole let's say take yourknife you get a little bit of a tripodWatch at: 30:00 / 30:20action here if you don't have a hole sawor Rotozipyou can use your saw and you just stabit through and cut the circle or you canjust square make a big X on the back ofWatch at: 30:20 / 30:40your drywall this is what I was talkingWatch at: 30:40 / 31:00about earlier close the gap on the taperejoice that one is a little split fromWatch at: 31:00 / 31:20the screw back it up till you get goodcontact there you go four screws willhold that until you finish it off if yougo near the end you can actually keepyour look and see if the strap goes allthe way the end of it doesn't back ifyou're enjoying these videos subscribeWatch at: 31:20 / 31:40to the channel hit the like button butmost importantly comment on the videosby all means or a suggestion of videosyou'd like to see let usno we'd love to be in touch[Music]so today we are going to be installingdrywall on the ceiling alone now there'sWatch at: 31:40 / 32:00a couple of different ways you can do ityou can be an absolute key man throw upsome two by fours and maybe someblocking unscrews and lift that up andcarry it yourself and spin them in placeor you can go and blow thirty bucks andrent the dry wall panel lift this thingis amazing it is worth its weight ingold it's just a quick tripod assemblyWatch at: 32:00 / 32:20you can rent these things in anybuilding store about thirty bucks a daygive or take and to be honest with youit is the second pair of hands and dropthat in there we go loose the wire pullthat out ah that just fits right inWatch at: 32:20 / 32:39there and does 360 okaynice and easy[Music]Watch at: 32:39 / 33:00these things drop in there[Music]there we go so this is how this bad boyworks it's euro sheet of drywall onthere sits on the arms and then you justWatch at: 33:00 / 33:20roll it over and you crank it up to theceiling so all-in-all it's pretty basicsimple construction but it has a coupleof other bells and whistles here rightherethese extension arms pop out to helpWatch at: 33:20 / 33:39balance your sheet so you can carryeight tens twelvesno problem all right so when you'reworking alone the whole trick is thiscarry your sheet white facing the liftand set it in so when you lift it upWatch at: 33:39 / 34:00your white paper is facing you so I havepre-cut my drywall sheets to the sizethat I want to put on the ceiling inultralight drywall isn't that heavytrying to get the middle of the drywalland then we just fold it over nice andWatch at: 34:00 / 34:20slow this is really fun all right so wejust cranked it up so automaticallylocks to release you need to basicallystart pulling and then you can pull thelever for that I'll allow you to comeWatch at: 34:20 / 34:40back down you'd like all the lever andthen it locks in place okay it's on anairline cable so it should be safe butbecause it's spun around this wheel herewhen I'm working I try to keep my handsall on this side just in case becauseit's a tripod this allows you to goright up against the outside wall and sothen once you've got it in position takeWatch at: 34:40 / 35:00these metal bars down because they willkeep the drywall from closing up tightagainst the outside wall give it alittle bit of a snug and then just liftyou're in a positionyeah you don't wanna be too tightbecause you want to be able to get thatWatch at: 35:00 / 35:20corner right where you want it once yougot your corner of a good position thenyou can lift it up nice and snugeverywhere in the holds in position foryou so now you can get up on the laddergrab the drywall you can't even movethis thing around so if you're out ofWatch at: 35:20 / 35:40positionjust come back down pull up your safetypull up on your tension release your barlet it down a little bit drop it down aquarter inch or so give it a little bitof maneuvering ability here okay therewe go then it's just as simple asWatch at: 35:40 / 36:00putting your screws in you know this isa way that you can do this kind of workon your own and lightning speed timeWatch at: 36:00 / 36:20certainly as a rule I like to throw ascrew and every piece of strapping justto mark for the straps are throw aWatch at: 36:20 / 36:40couple of screws in the middle of thesheet you can finish screwing the wholesheet without moving this thing out ofyour way but you might find it a littlebit difficult to maneuver it might alsofind it difficult to get your line ofsight rightWatch at: 36:40 / 37:00or they are making right where you'restrapping is that it's in the waybottom line an 8-foot sheet of drywallif you had to just screws into cornerson each side in a couple in the middleit would hold up by itself you canrelease the arm long before you're doneWatch at: 37:00 / 37:20okay pull it away again put up theextension arms again and throw on yournext sheet so this room that we're doinghere it's I think it's eight sheets ofdrywall long it'll take approximatelyfour or five minutes per sheet toWatch at: 37:20 / 37:40install you've got a couple mechanicalcutouts so add a few minutes for thatbut we can have this whole ceiling donein about an hour thirty bucksbetter than hiring two guys to give youan if you're enjoying these videossubscribe to the channel hit the likebutton but most importantly comment onthe videos by all means or a suggestionof video you'd like to see let us knowWatch at: 37:40 / 38:00we'd love to be in touchwelcome to our tutorial on how to hangdrywall there's not a whole lot to talkabout until we have it so let's go getstartedput it right into the corner okay youget to drive the ship all right I know Ijust close it like a doorokay that's easiest I know we both liveWatch at: 38:00 / 38:20together can we make it your side tightto the right enough okay and then youcan see how the gap at the ceiling isclosed real nice there we go so whenWatch at: 38:20 / 38:40you're installing a wall you only need acouple screws and then mark went abovemidpoint up if you only put them in thebottom you turn around to walk awayyou'll open a door to leave room createa vacuum with the hair pressure and youpull it right off the well some poorWatch at: 38:40 / 39:00sucker be sitting here and doing someworking take the back of the head nevera good thing before you put the bottomone on mark all your stats by putting ascrew in them all right and you can getyour assistant or your kids to fill inWatch at: 39:00 / 39:20all the screws later what's the heighthere to the ground now because this is aconcrete floor underneath we want tomeasure all three spots actual number isforty four and a halfforty fiveWatch at: 39:20 / 39:4045 there okay so when you're figuringout what to cutyou take your shortest number and youcut it all to fit this okayso instead of one forty four and a halfthat'll be tight we're gonna go cut thewhole thing at forty four so I have aWatch at: 39:40 / 40:00half inch gap there and a one inch gapthere it's not going to matterafter the flooring is on we have a threeinch base port lots of meat they'll workout real well don't be afraid to leave agap underneath your drywall about aninch if you're going directly toconcrete you definitely have to leavethe inch never want drywall in contactwith your concrete it'll pull theWatch at: 40:00 / 40:20moisture out of the concrete into thewall board guaranteed to feed the moldthat's naturally occurring in the woodand your baseboards are gonna go blackWatch at: 40:20 / 40:40okay have we marked the floor plug yeahbeautiful to the ground where did youmark it hole on the floor okay that'scoolso I went to the store to pick up apanel lifter cuz I got a couple cheatsWatch at: 40:40 / 41:00that I usually use but I thought youknow if I'm teaching people how to dothis on a video I should probably teachthem about this great little toolthere's a lot of different options outthere were in the piano liftingdepartment basically it's just a footit's a lever point you step on it youlift the drywall and the idea is to saveWatch at: 41:00 / 41:20you time and money and energy you reallywant to get this nice and tight the gapit's the one you're gonna tape and thegap but the ground doesn't matter sowe're gonna push it to the wall we'regonna lift it up alright there you gothrow on a screw you know missionWatch at: 41:20 / 41:40accomplishednot a bad little tool it's a beautifulthingalright now like I've been preaching Ialways cut your holes as you go port inWatch at: 41:40 / 42:00it from the ground[Music][Music]Watch at: 42:00 / 42:20well that markers close your mark was onthe right side of the box so withoutthat mint middle when you install yourWatch at: 42:20 / 42:40studs in your wall level and straightit's so much easier to put in a screwyou can just hold roughly where you wererelease the drill and gravity falls okaythat's where the wood is it's so easyyou'll never miss and you'll never haveWatch at: 42:40 / 43:00all those annoying little holes torepair alright so that basically coversall of the basics on how to installdrywall there's a couple of other littlethings that you we're gonna learn one ofthem is if you're having two sheets ofdrywall butt up against each other youwant to have it joint on a stud right inWatch at: 43:00 / 43:20the middle so in that scenario let'sleave it this way if this is where thetwo sheets are gonna meet this is whereyou want them to meet right in themiddle line so if I'm gonna be cutting asheet like that I actually want tomeasure from the corner to that pencilline alright take that measurement andWatch at: 43:20 / 43:40go to your drywalland then measure off your drywall fromhere to the measurement and make therough cut on the inside corner leave allthe factory edges butting up againsteach other cuz whenever you cut drywallyou always get a little rigid bumps ifyou screw that upgrab your rasp this is like a file forWatch at: 43:40 / 44:00drywall works awesome you can clean itup make sure all your joints are niceand tight

every suggestionand video you'd like to see let us knowwe'd love to be in touchso now you've finished closing up yourbasement and it doesn't look anythinglike this because you haven't taped ityet so the your next step is they go toWatch at: 44:20 / 44:40with for the phone and call someone todo your mud work for you so here you goI'm gonna teach you all the tips and allthe tricks that you need so you canfinish it yourself and you're gonna doit like a pro you're not gonna do itlike that little of course you get atthe building store for two hours you'renot gonna do it like they show you inthe videos I've seen on YouTube so farthis is a complete guide to how to buythe right tools how to use them and howWatch at: 44:40 / 45:00to finish this basement like a pro witha finish that's even better than thehouse you're living in right now sofirst thing you need basic tools we'regonna keep it simpleyou got a four inch flexible blade knifealright this is the workhorse this doesall of the little details and all of thesetting of the tape the other knifeyou're gonna need and I'm gonna suggestWatch at: 45:00 / 45:20this if you've never done this before isa 4 by 10 but the same size as a heat ahurry register in your house this isshould be really sharp now I like thisone this is a stainless steel blade itwon't rust it's very strong when you buyit if you put art using it right awayyou're gonna get this little greenieWatch at: 45:20 / 45:40look in the mud so grab yourself asanding sponge sit down and watch yourfavorite TV show spend about 30 minutessanding the edges and then you know gosilky smooth when you're at applyingyour mud that's your secrets okay nextthing you need is a hawk I've seen a lotof guys talking about these little metalWatch at: 45:40 / 46:00trays and they put a couple scoops ofmud in there and they carry it aroundand you're wasting your time you'regonna spend all your day putting mud inand taking my doubt of that littlebucket this is a hawk this is the thisis the workhorse for any - professionalpaper while you're working you can alsocatch any mud coming off the ceilingbrilliant keep your floors clean otherthan that all you really need is someWatch at: 46:00 / 46:20mixing equipment for the basics we havea slow-speed drill now this is somethingthat I would recommend if you're gonnamix the whole box at a time it might bea tool that's not worth investing in ifyou're only doing your one basement soyou can use a variable speed drill justmake sure that you're only mixing half abox at a time so you're not overworkingyour drill and making it burn outWatch at: 46:20 / 46:40okay we need some sheetrock 45 and thisis just a compound that comes in powderform you're gonna add water and makeyour own mud this is designed to setreally quick it has a hardener in it sothere's different applications that youwant to use a hardener and we'll gothrough those in a few minutesother than that you need some mixingpaddles pails and water and a sponge ifWatch at: 46:40 / 47:00you don't have a spongedon't start go buy a sponge without thesponge you can't keep the pail thatyou're keeping your mud and clean it'lldry out get crunchy fall in your mud andas you're putting it on your wall you'regonna be making big lines and grooveseverywhere and destroy your work so onceyou've got all the basics setup IWatch at: 47:00 / 47:20recommend getting a platform like thisas well these are really quick andsimple they're made of aluminum and youcan move that around real easy helps youto work on the ceiling stepladder oralso work but again you're limited youcan only work in a couple feet at a timeso having a platform like this helpsmake the job go a lot smoother okay soyou'll notice when you go to the storethere's a lot of different kinds of mudWatch at: 47:20 / 47:40available there's no this is CGC is amanufacturer but there's there's beigethere's wait there's ultra light there'sfor heavy fill there's all kinds ofdifferent products I prefer to use themachine mud this is the one that'sdesigned to go in the the we call it thebazooka of the big tube and it it's moreof a commercial application don't go buyWatch at: 47:40 / 48:00a bazooka they're very expensive but themud is fantastic so here's what we doit's a couple extra bucks a box but itcomes in a really nice consistency itgoes on the wall really smooth and sowhat I do is I just take the whole bag IgoWatch at: 48:00 / 48:20save the box because you're gonna needit for the garbage afterwards turn itupside down empty it into the pailjust like that pull the plastic overWatch at: 48:20 / 48:40that's only 25 cents of mud left I liketo stay clean if you really want to youcan fight with that and get all the mudpossible out of thereleave out up to you nowthis mud is ready to be applied mostWatch at: 48:40 / 49:00people just take it right out of the boxand go and they'll put it on their Hawkgrab a little bit of mud it's very stiffyou see all the air pockets and they'lljust work it up a little bit and you'llsee it get a little bit smoother okaythat's not terrible mud but in mybusiness inner pockets are veryWatch at: 49:00 / 49:20dangerous because what happens is theyget settled in behind your paper tapeand then after you've done your firstcoat you've got to go around and cut allthe paper and clean it up and then fillit in and that's just a great big wasteof time okay so what we do one handfulWatch at: 49:20 / 49:40two handfuls of mud that's it that's thewhole secret put your mixing blade inthere stick on your slope speed mixernow hold on for dear life squeeze withyour legs start near the top really slowWatch at: 49:40 / 50:00what's that water through all right andthen just kind of finish whipping it up[Music]okay what's your blade back in theWatch at: 50:00 / 50:20bucket of water keep that clean now I'llshow you the difference it's alreadysilky smooth all right it's a little bitthinner real easy to work with reallyobedient the air pockets are gone and IWatch at: 50:20 / 50:40can use this mud from my first or mysecond coats okay and then you're gonnabe perfect now for my final coat of mudwe want to go even thinner because thelast coat is really the one you'resanding I'm not a big fan of sanding inbetween coats I like to do clean mudwork so what I'll do is I'll takeWatch at: 50:40 / 51:00another two handfuls of water and I'llmix this one[Music]Watch at: 51:00 / 51:20[Applause][Music]now this code is even thinner okay it'llWatch at: 51:20 / 51:40stay on a hawk but it is really soupythat's the perfect finished coat whenthat's dry you can sand that withrelative ease and if you have a niceclean application you're hardly have tosale it at all so before you begin theWatch at: 51:40 / 52:00first step is actually to fill all yourgaps so anywhere where your drywall hasbeen installed on a bit of an angle andopened up a hole you want to fill yourhole and you want to use something witha hardener in it because when you'retaping if you fill it with regular mudand then apply your tape the mud willshrink as it sets it'll pull away fromthe tape and you'll get an air pocket soWatch at: 52:00 / 52:20what we do take your knife now whenyou're mixing a dry powder you alwayswant to add a little bit of water firstokay in this particular powder it'sWatch at: 52:20 / 52:40about a one-third two-third scenarioagain we're gonna use a smaller mixingblade here you could even use a paintmixer or a grout mixerWatch at: 52:40 / 53:00[Applause]now we take a look inside the pail thisis all about what you see okay right nowit's very lumpy well just add a couplehandfuls at a time until we get it theway we want it that's the safest way toWatch at: 53:00 / 53:20do itthere we go and you mix her in your pailof water here's this is nice and fluffyWatch at: 53:20 / 53:40okay nice and easy to work with butbecause it has a harder with in 30minutes this would be hard won't drinkanymoreand you'll be able to tape over top ofthis alright so we've shown you all thetools and all of the mixing techniquesWatch at: 53:40 / 54:00we have our money are ready to go overfirst coat let's go fill some caps ifyou're enjoying these videos subscribeto the channel hit the like button butmost importantly comment on the videosby all means or a suggestion of videoyou'd like to see let us know we'd loveto be in touch[Music]Watch at: 54:00 / 54:20you[Music]so we've gone through all of our toolswe're showing you how to mix your mudsnow before this dries let's go fill someWatch at: 54:20 / 54:40gaps before we get started taping wewant to fill our gaps now this is my 45minute mud it's not silky smooth it's alittle thick and I don't need one ofthose little pans to hold on to ithocks are awesome you can have more mudand it's a lot easier to carry like thisthen it is like this you'll get nastycramps so basically what we're doing isWatch at: 54:40 / 55:00we're just gonna slap some mud up hereand it's by the sealing cap okay this isjust the more you can put up here thebetter this is not about being prettythis is about being quick you don't havea lot of time here so put our knife herewe're gonna hold it on bit of an angleabout 22 degrees okay we're gonna fillup that gap relatively speaking realWatch at: 55:00 / 55:20quick and simple if it's not filled comefrom the top use the side of the knifeto press it in and then do the samething there all right so really whatwe're doing is just trying to fill thegap with this mud so that we can takeWatch at: 55:20 / 55:40this mud should be stiff enough to holditself in placeand this is just a little something sothat when we're taping we're not relyingon our wet compound to hold all up inplace look at that hey so if you don'tWatch at: 55:40 / 56:00succeed the first time try try againjust keep on going back and fill in thebottom filling the top until you get anice and full like that that'll be goodenough for usso usually you don't have a gap on theceiling because you put the ceiling infirst but if you remember earlier we hadWatch at: 56:00 / 56:20a spray foam on this wall and the clientwearing it covered because they wereconcerned about the fumes from firedamage that'd be the perfect storm butyou know we reluctantly agreed to coverthe walls and now I'm faced with doingthis mess but this is effective it doesdry quick and if I don't do this I'm infor one heck of a mess when I'm doing myWatch at: 56:20 / 56:40take joists we're still filling the gapsI gotta move quickly the trick with thisstuff is work from the side of the knifedon't put them out in this way come offthe side of the knife it's easier way toput them out on the wall and leave itthere then clean it this way put that inWatch at: 56:40 / 57:00nice and[Music]okay there we gowhen we don't want any mud in thiscorner that shouldn't be there make sureyou take time to clean it now that'sready to take this gap is about a halfWatch at: 57:00 / 57:20an inch it's pretty severe if you'refinding you have trouble with that sortof thing happening take it out and grabsome mesh tables now the fiberglass meshtape is something that you should haveWatch at: 57:20 / 57:40on you when you're working it's a greatlittle piece of tape to have in yourtoolbox it gives you a lot offlexibility to solve problems like thisso generally speaking I like to usepaper tape only I will keep fiberglasstape on hand for just such an occasionas this like to pre-measurerip it off for the edge of your knifeit's got an adhesive on one side so whatWatch at: 57:40 / 58:00I want to do is put it up here andbridge the gap and I want to slowly justwork that into the cornerwithout cutting it nice and easy nowWatch at: 58:00 / 58:20fiberglass tape the unique propertiesyou can use that to fill the gap thiswill help hold much okay you cannot usethe rig in the mud with fiberglass meshtape it won't hold for whatever reasonI'm not a chemist oh I only know is fromWatch at: 58:20 / 58:40experienced fiberglass mesh tape isn'tthat stickball - mud and it will peeloff if you don't use my brother hardernow that we have that up there back toWatch at: 58:40 / 59:00the same process the side of the kniferemembers feet is very important herebecause this is already starting to setup pretty quick[Music]take all the excess out and clean theWatch at: 59:00 / 59:20bottom a little bit blood there youdon't need with some pressure so if youhave some time work the joint just alittle bit get all the extra mutters getrid of the wrinkles and if anything isWatch at: 59:20 / 59:40you don't like it just push it up in theceiling so it's out of the way andthey'll be covered by the next kind ofstyle here we go ready to tape if you'reenjoying these videos subscribe to thechannel hit the like button but mostimportantly comment on the videos by allmeans or the suggestion of video you'dWatch at: 59:40 / 01:00:00like to see let us know we'd love to bein touchtake the tape we shirts square it's notjust gonna rip go right to the ceilingwith itthis is the only joint the ceiling thatI recommend overlapping your table Ialways recommend doing your insideWatch at: 01:00:00 / 01:00:20corners first I don't like to see paperover top a paper on the wallso when where did this ball joint I wantto do my inside corner I want to bringmy paper up to this point so I don'tWatch at: 01:00:20 / 01:00:40want to make this joint any thicker thanknees to me this right now I'm justgently pressing that into the mud okaywe need a little bit of excess now mostpeople stop their hearing the secretWatch at: 01:00:40 / 01:01:00when you're done get it wet and thentake it off again and I'll tell you whythat's so important to do if the surfaceof this paper is dry like it is rightnow while it's setting up and curingWatch at: 01:01:00 / 01:01:20it's gonna lift right off that wall ifyour paper isn't wet it will form an airbubble again I don't understand thescience all I know is from experience ifI don't have wet paper drying on my wallit's gonna form air bubbles and it'sWatch at: 01:01:20 / 01:01:40gonna come off so I'm gonna just keep onwiping it on and wiping it off make sureit's nice and clean this way when I comeback tomorrow I know I'm not gonna haveany bubbles and I don't have to goWatch at: 01:01:40 / 01:02:00backwards before I'm gonna go forwardsagainokay so we're gonna tape our horizontaljoint nixed after we've done our insidecorners again the system here is reallysimple you don't want to have tape overtape so before we can do our butt jointswe want to have the horizontal joint onagain we've had this build and it'sWatch at: 01:02:00 / 01:02:20dried overnight so process remember wetalked about the taper joint so fromabout two inches up and two inches downit's all recessed all right just takeyour knife put on your mud this is aheck of a lot faster than any techniqueyou've ever seen in any year before okayWatch at: 01:02:20 / 01:02:40Wow come back and you're not removing itfrom the area that we're putting thetape you're just removing it from theexcess over and above what we needremember that's higher and that's higherWatch at: 01:02:40 / 01:03:00than this is so we're gonna fill the gapfinish off the rest of the wall no sensetaping halfway to the end of this walland then stopping here we go now whenyou're doing this and we talked aboutthe the crease you want to have theWatch at: 01:03:00 / 01:03:20crease inside the wall so nice straightedge place that right where we'restarting you want to know where it isjust put your knife there it'll sit inthe crack you can market there we goWatch at: 01:03:20 / 01:03:40so now what we have to do is we want toget rid of the excess blood that'sunderneath this tape just to set it intomud so I'm gonna use my hock to hold itWatch at: 01:03:40 / 01:04:00in my second pair of hands just the lastcouple feet here okay folks alright thisone I'm talking aboutno I have one depth of finish okay soyou can come back now watch this samething off the side of the knife hit thatpaper wet clean it up no it's okay ifWatch at: 01:04:00 / 01:04:19you filled the gap between the paper andthe edge of that recess in the in thedrywall over losing my step here sowe're gonna press it out clean the topclean the bottom take a little bit mudoff the sideWatch at: 01:04:19 / 01:04:40then we've missed a spot very importantmake sure everything gets wet if youhave a wrinkle just grab the edge of thetape and stretch it again just clean themud make sure it's wet clean that upWatch at: 01:04:40 / 01:05:00so the butt joint is one of the majorreasons why we want to water our muddown the science is really simplebecause we have two surfaces that areWatch at: 01:05:00 / 01:05:19the same thickness we're gonna add mudand then add tape we're creating a bumpso we want to do is the science is tostretch that bump of whatever 2millimeters over a large area so that weare causing ourselves to focus on such alarge piece of wall we can't identifythe fact that it comes out and goes backWatch at: 01:05:19 / 01:05:40in again because we don't see anyshadows this is not about levelling thiswall is never gonna be level it'll neverbe flat you'll always have a bump youwant to just make the bump so gradualand so wide that it's not recognizableone of the ways to do that is bystaggering your joints don't ever putthem on top of each other because nowyou're creating an opportunity if theWatch at: 01:05:40 / 01:06:00Sun hits it just a certain way you'regonna see that bump ok so it's the samething you want to fill the gap side ofthe knife put it on nice and liberal[Music]now when you're doing a horizontal jointyou want to work from the bottom up ifyou do it from the top down and I'llWatch at: 01:06:00 / 01:06:19show you this demonstration here we gogoopy what's gonna end up everywhereokay if you work from the bottom downbottom up you have them a lot morecontrolthe muds getting pushed to the sidewhile you're going up and it will stickto the wall take our paper tape checkWatch at: 01:06:19 / 01:06:40your edge make sure it's nice and squarefind that spot where we want to startokay press the meadow from behind setyour depth just gently press it in notWatch at: 01:06:40 / 01:07:00too firmly at this point okay now wehave to hold the hawk and press up okayhello keep your fingers clean and alsoset it up so that you can clean them upfrom the bottom a lot of times you'llWatch at: 01:07:00 / 01:07:19see you guys when they're taping theyhave a huge mound of mud at the bottombecause they don't take the time to beclean with the work take the time and doclean work makes installing yourbaseboards easier okay so the otherelement of the wall you want to cover isthe ceiling corners and then the screwsso silly corners are simple same thingWatch at: 01:07:19 / 01:07:40moja mud on come off the side of thetape side of your knife okay now there'sthat hardener we talked about earlierit's all set in place now we only didthat 30 minutes ago but we're ready totape the corner[Music]Watch at: 01:07:40 / 01:08:00[Music]just making sure I have mud everywhere Idon't want to have a dry spot good samething inside corner measure tear ripinstall just place it up in there niceWatch at: 01:08:00 / 01:08:20and gentle get your third hand pressthat in okayreally nice get it right the refills outWatch at: 01:08:20 / 01:08:40of itwhen you're done put your knife upagainst your corner create pressure turnit off that's done so how to fill thescrew hole properly I know it soundsWatch at: 01:08:40 / 01:09:00silly is the smallest issue but most thetime when you're checking the wall firmperfections is going to be a screw holeproblemalright so people come along and they'llwipe the mud in two different directionsand that's great so you fill the holeproblem is the mud shrinks when it driesand most of these screws have been putin with a dimmer and that thicknessneeds a second coat so don't just do itWatch at: 01:09:00 / 01:09:20once and think you're done make sureevery time you do your coat on your wallyou hit your screws now if you go thisway and then this way you'll get the jobdone so you'll see what happens it's alot of work you're gonna have littlepieces left everywhere if you have toomuch mud on your tool you're like oh ohoh so a lot of time to spend on a screwWatch at: 01:09:20 / 01:09:40instead put it on the same way you'replaying it off the side go up and downoff the side and then straight down thisway you're applying it on two inchesgoing up and cleaning it with a fourWatch at: 01:09:40 / 01:10:00inch tool coming down no extra mess andyou can do all the screw goals in thisentire basement about ten minutes allright so the last element that you wantto make sure that you take care of onyour first coat of mud is your paperbeat outside corners that have the metalon the inside of it okaythere's two kind of corner beads there'sthis and there's metal especiallyWatch at: 01:10:00 / 01:10:20there's three there are plastic thoseare for fancy things if you're doingcurves you're gonna have to get that butwe're gonna cover this one for firstcoat because I'd like to fill it get itin and then leave all this paper exposedjust like the rest of my paper ducks Ifind if I put this on during thesecond coat and I try to fill it rightaway I end up putting too much moistureWatch at: 01:10:20 / 01:10:40there and always bubbles so I always putthis on in your first coat and won'tcause you any problems this is reallydesigned for bulkheads the way we do ourbulkheads as we have to watch the videowe set up a laser and now we have metaltracking okay so we don't have any woodin this corner to screw anything to so Iwant to just take my rasp make sure myWatch at: 01:10:40 / 01:11:00outside corner is nice and sleeve and Idon't have any protrusions did you seethat keep your hawk underneath catch allyour drips you never get mud on yourWatch at: 01:11:00 / 01:11:20shoes now you see all this masked messdown here we should have taken the timeto put filler in here but if you didn't[Music]because this paper bead comes withcorner let's pull a metal you can getWatch at: 01:11:20 / 01:11:40away with using regular mud here andeNOS just get it all on but we just wanta nice big wet line here that's widerthan our corner bead[Music]right in the corner bead there's themetal corner this is the short side it'sWatch at: 01:11:40 / 01:12:003/8 this one is almost 5/8 the widemetal goes over the exposed drywall okayfolks that's very important so whenyou're measuring always make sure yougot a hold your held lis right so thatyour finish factory edge is going upanother finish factory edge they justplace it in use your knife now you wantWatch at: 01:12:00 / 01:12:20to have a gap so make sure you move itaround and have a gap there's myceilings check this outno gap so I can just pull down thatcorner make sure that I have a gap soI'm going to clean that out there gapWatch at: 01:12:20 / 01:12:40gap that's what we're doing making surethat everywhere we go we have a gap tofill so that we don't have to bring themud up and around to finish all rightWatch at: 01:12:40 / 01:13:00now again like I said if you do it thisway and you let that sit overnight it'dbe nice and dry and then when you comeback to do your corner so you can fillit with 45 your quick-set mud with thehardener and then the bottom an hourlater you can come by and put yourfinish coat on and all your outsidecorners you're done okay so that'sWatch at: 01:13:00 / 01:13:20basically all they you need to knowabout how to do a first coat so we'rejust gonna finish all of our joints andwe'll see you again back here tomorrowif you're enjoying these videossubscribe to the channel hit the likebutton but most importantly comment onthe videos by all means or a suggestionof video you'd like to see let us knowwe'd love to be in touchWatch at: 01:13:20 / 01:13:40day two but joint we still got onechoice on the ceiling just take thatdeer knife and clean that junk off nowwe're good to go so the same processyou're just gonna fill down one side geta good pack much if you collect your mudand put on your hawk so you don't havemuch at the top and bottom it shouldn'tWatch at: 01:13:40 / 01:14:00land all over your face when you'reworking upside down like this okay nowwe want to clean by putting thatpressure you see the ridge is too closethere we go with the pressure on theoutside over here and then one down themiddle on the paper and leave thoseWatch at: 01:14:00 / 01:14:20lines there that tells us where it isthat we filled to and what we have tofill afterwards okay same thing comingthe other wayso in drywall less is more the goal isWatch at: 01:14:20 / 01:14:40not to put on so much mud and then sandfor 14 days to get it all nice andsmooth the goal is to imply the mudsmooth and then just sand to change thetexture of the surface that's it allright so here we go we've got that allset up less is moreif we put too much on there then we gotWatch at: 01:14:40 / 01:15:00to take it all back off again that'sjust a waste of time when chef all yourbutt joins done if you still have anymud left you take care of all yourinside corners all right just a realquick look take the forest knife runyour corner with it real quick make surethat you don't have any big chunks ofmud there in your way again a little bitWatch at: 01:15:00 / 01:15:20of mud I like to go with the left sideof the corner first because I'mright-handed it just makes sense to meand then this is gonna go and put moremud than I need[Music]okay this is one application where youWatch at: 01:15:20 / 01:15:40don't want to use the side of your knifebecause you want to set up mud goingfrom zero to cover over that four inchesif your tools clean as you go you won'twear it all right no what I want to dois I want to use pressure on this knifeWatch at: 01:15:40 / 01:16:00like this so I'm cleaning this mud astight as I can and leaving the wrist nowyou see them to change direction becausewhen you're doing finish work you alwayscome towards your finish work now whatI'm gonna do is anyone to troughout theinside corner with my knife I'm gonnaWatch at: 01:16:00 / 01:16:20put my pressure on it'll fill it up andfinish flat without any excess you seethat I'm not making the other side ofthat corner dirty as soon as I see alittle extra excess mud I'll take it outhit the trough again clean my knife I'llstart coming from the other directionthis time always finishing to finishingWatch at: 01:16:20 / 01:16:40to finish med the second second dayfirst coat on your inside corners onlydo one side there's a tool on the marketwe should talk about this is I got ahandle and it's got this little v notchon it and it's designed you put a bunchof mud in the corner you track it downWatch at: 01:16:40 / 01:17:00and it's supposed to clean all theexcess mud out of your way but it leavesway too much mud in the corner and thecorner isn't sharp you want a 90-degreecorner so use the two of the ninetydegrees those are really rounded andthen when you come back into sand thatyou're always going to sand too much outof the corner you know but these deepgreat big deep bruise in your drywalllooks like hell so we saw on day one weWatch at: 01:17:00 / 01:17:20like to install our paper corner beadsand all of our bulkheads anywhere wherethere's no meat in the back of theirrights no wood but on day two I like toput all my metal corner beads on andmaybe the camera can pick this up butyou'll see that as ninety degrees maybeeven open a little bit more than ninetydegrees what I prefer to do take twosecondsWatch at: 01:17:20 / 01:17:40pinch that together more of an 85 okayand the reason is when I screw this on Iwant the outside corner of that beadsticking out in both directions I don'twant it flattened I know these are madefor really quick installation there's atool on the market for the professionaldrywall installers you put the cornerWatch at: 01:17:40 / 01:18:00bead on and they just slam this hammereddevice over top of it and it breaks themetal grabs the drywall and they're goodto go but if you're working in your homeand you're like a nice joint and this isthe way to put it on we're gonna push itup to the ceiling now max maybe with thecamera you can see this now I've got aWatch at: 01:18:00 / 01:18:20gap here and I've got a gap here to fillalright so when you do an outside cornerbead you're gonna have a prettysignificant gap and that's a good thingand because we bent the metal and grateand created a nice gap we can usedrywall screws again there is a blueWatch at: 01:18:20 / 01:18:40ring drywall nail on the market and it'sa nice little nail and you can hammerthem in it's a thin metal it comes witha flat head and you can pound them inand it does a great job but I wouldrather have to push that get a good grabthen I don't have to rely on adhesivesor something mechanical that bustWatch at: 01:18:40 / 01:19:00through the metal into the drywall it'sa little old fashioned but I get tosleep at night and you don't have to puta screw in every single hole every 16 to24 inches there's plenty always have anice tight corner and you're good to gookay so I'm going to take my 45 minuteWatch at: 01:19:00 / 01:19:20mud here now we're gonna fill this metalcorner and we're gonna go over to all ofour paper beads and fill those as wellday two is outside corner day and I'mjust using the side of my trail andloading it on okay that's it folksWatch at: 01:19:20 / 01:19:40coming back and taking it off I'm justsetting my knife about three inches fromthe inside corner there I don't want totake out any more mud that's notnecessary kind of that inside cornerthat's a fresh corner not using pressureWatch at: 01:19:40 / 01:20:00on this knife because I don't want togroove it I just want to clean it up Imade a mess of me inside clear so I'mgonna go back and fix that right awayokay so this is gonna be a door framereally important when you're workingWatch at: 01:20:00 / 01:20:20around door frames you don't add athickness to the wall next to where yourdoor jamb goes okay so you don't want tojust have this huge pile of mud sittingthere like thatall right that's going to cause you awhole world of hurt when it goes to dofinishing trim you want to clean asWatch at: 01:20:20 / 01:20:40tight as you can from that drywall tothe outside of that quarter so put yourknife on there use some pressurewe got a 45 minute mud on her Huckprobably talking and moving a littlefaster as it dries but you want to justtake your knife double check thateverything has cleaned up before you getWatch at: 01:20:40 / 01:21:00started fill it and just I'm kind ofdoing like a rolling I'm starting likethat and rolling it off okay just sothat I leave them up on the wall that'sjust easier then you can go back with aWatch at: 01:21:00 / 01:21:20little bit of better pressure okay and Idon't need this to be perfect I justneed it not to be bumpy I don't wantanything sticking out further than whatI'm gonna have as a finish because we'regonna come back in about a half an hourand put another coat on it now whenyou're doing underneath again start fromWatch at: 01:21:20 / 01:21:40the outside roll it off at the cornerswhen you come to one of these outsidecornerscome at it from the angle so you'refinishing on both metals at the sametime okay that'll set the depth of themud real nice and then when you're readyWatch at: 01:21:40 / 01:22:00to clean it off you can come out of thisway he's off on the pressure come out ofthis way he's off on the pressure andthen come out from the backside allrightyou're gonna see those ridges they'renot your enemy you can clean them up alittle bit but leave the ridges thereWatch at: 01:22:00 / 01:22:20something like that okay so we're stillworking on our second coat so I'd liketo work through my room clockwise cuzI'm right-handed that way I'm alwaysfinishing towards my finished muttso I did my outside corner up down myinside corner now we're gonna do ahorizontal joints this is day two andWatch at: 01:22:20 / 01:22:40this is a Phil Coke day what we'relooking is we're looking at throwing alot of mud on the wall to fill the quotefrom here to here and then maybe juststretch it out just a hair make surethat it's all nice and level so whenyou're doing that you want to putpressure on the bottom on a bit of anangle here so you're not pouring mud allover the floor okay clean off all theWatch at: 01:22:40 / 01:23:00excess and then with a little bit ofpressure top and bottom nice and evenfill it all inthat's it we don't want to see this onsecond coat I don't want to see thatif you can't see the tape you've usedtoo much mud all rightthe mud is somewhat translucent when youWatch at: 01:23:00 / 01:23:20do it properly you should be able to seeyour tape through the mud okay you wantto see the definition of the taper jointand you want to know that you've justfilled what's necessary and that's itand you've taken the rest of that mudoff the wall second opportunity hit thescrew holes okaynever let an opportunity go by to hitthe screw holes gives you an opportunityWatch at: 01:23:20 / 01:23:40a and make sure that they're all sunkyou don't have the head sticking out oh[Music]we have a real need to investigate okayso somewhere during the constructionhere that screw hole missed the mark andWatch at: 01:23:40 / 01:24:00it's getting filled when that happensdon't just cover it up with mud andcover it up with mud and then sand itbump smooth dent it with your handlefill that hole with mud all right samewith this this is a bit of a mess okayadd mud at paperWatch at: 01:24:00 / 01:24:20[Music]here's the crazy part now this patch isback to first coat this is ultimatelythe problem so the way we fix this istomorrow when we come when this is drywe'll actually hit this with some 45minute mud and then we'll do the finishcoat on the top that way the whole jobsWatch at: 01:24:20 / 01:24:40finished together all right so the onlything left to do on second coat is tohit your outside corners with yourfinished mudhere's that you do let's take a fingerin it if it makes a hole it's not dryleave it alone till it's dryif you're enjoying these videossubscribe to the channel hit the likebutton but most importantly comment onWatch at: 01:24:40 / 01:25:00the videos by all means or a suggestionof video you'd like to see let us knowwe'd love to be in touchhere we are on day three of the mud workso day one we did all of our tape jointsday two we did our inside and insidecorners and we took care of our buttjoints day three now it's time to takeWatch at: 01:25:00 / 01:25:20care of all the horizontals so first ofall we have to get rid of all theseridges that are left over from day twookay this is all I doyou don't need to sand now we're readyto mud so we're gonna take our mud onWatch at: 01:25:20 / 01:25:40our ten inch trout slap it on put anangle on it put pressure on the bottomso we're constantly forcing them updon't do anything special around thoseplugins and switches just keep onfilling all right now if you do it thatway it's not gonna end up all over thefloor okay right over hereWatch at: 01:25:40 / 01:26:00but joint we're just cleaning this edgeright you know we want to be able to seeour paper we don't want to use too muchmud okay now we're gonna come back theother way and finish towards what'sfinished top and bottom pressure alongWatch at: 01:26:00 / 01:26:20the middle we're not just throwing abunch of mud on the wall we're trying tofill from here to here and make itsmooth fresh across the topfresh across the bottom very veryimportant if you have a huge job like abasement to do and you start day threeof taping with your horizontals you canWatch at: 01:26:20 / 01:26:40come back now at the end of the day andhit your butt joints again but don't doit until this mud is dried up okay giveit a few hours to set up against stiffbecause your last thing you wanna do isstart coming down here and puttinggrooves in that finish coat that wouldbe a no no all right on your third dayof working in your basement you want todo the rest here inside corners nowyou'll see here this mud is actuallyWatch at: 01:26:40 / 01:27:00still wet you can see the dark line allrightwe don't want to be doing that one butthe ceiling looks perfect so that's whyyou want to do your inside corners as assoon as you can get to it becausesometimes they take an extra day to dryout especially in a basement you'rebelow grade there's not as much placefor the moisture to go because it's on avapour barrier wall so theWatch at: 01:27:00 / 01:27:20place that the moisture can go is backinto the room where a lot of theseinterior walls the moisture can go fromthe drywall in both directions so theytend to drive fasterso we'll get up here it's a little bitof a cramped space but I want to be ableto see what I'm doing again before weget started we'll just put the knifeWatch at: 01:27:20 / 01:27:40across make sure we don't have anyridges or bumps or chunks of mud thinnerin our way all right working from theside of the knife we want to just putthe mud up towards the ceiling thereason we want to wait until it's dry isbecause we're using the surface here asWatch at: 01:27:40 / 01:28:00our edge it's gonna guide us so nowwe're gonna come back with our knife andwe're gonna go like thisand you're gonna see a little bit of aridge line here that happens come backthe other way and we're gonna clean outa groove again just like we did thefirst time and then I'm gonna startWatch at: 01:28:00 / 01:28:20right in my corner make this pretty Ialways take time in your corners andmake them pretty there we go I'm gonnarun this across I'm starting to get abit of a snowplow I'll come by and cleanit up knowing I'm gonna finish towardswhat's finished Oh see that a little bitWatch at: 01:28:20 / 01:28:40of a ridge there's cuz the mud isn'tquite dry enough I'll be real gentlewith this okay so we did our 45 minutemud now it's hard it doesn't have to bedry just hard and we're gonna finish itWatch at: 01:28:40 / 01:29:00with our finish mud and this is the onethat we got a little bit wetter thantheir other coat okay so we're justgonna put it on pretty liberalhere we go right up to the top lay thenWatch at: 01:29:00 / 01:29:20give it a jiggle all right folksso it's the end of day 3 our horizontalsare all drying up real nice so now we'reready to hit the butt joints before wewalk out the door we're just gonna takeour knife scratch down the side hit thebottom make sure all the junk is out ofthe way make sure your knife is nice andWatch at: 01:29:20 / 01:29:40clean load it upall right now we've already filled fromhere you can see the ridge that's wherewe filled to right so what we want to donow is go from there even further allright put a nice healthy whack of muttonin that line okay that stretches theWatch at: 01:29:40 / 01:30:00joint out then you go one more over themiddle now this one's a little bitdifferent because the last time westarted from the outside with pressurework into the middle this time we'regonna start the middle working theoutside alright so again lots ofWatch at: 01:30:00 / 01:30:20pressure here we don't want to make thejoint any thicker than it already isand now we're gonna go with the outsidepressure we're basically working offthat Ridge okay and then one more time alittle further up and we just want toWatch at: 01:30:20 / 01:30:40clean up down here because we don't havea bunch of mud where we're baseboardsare going again édouard pressure come atit from both directions get rid of allthat extra mud now your butt joint isreally filled and really stretched ifyou see junk in the mud get rid of ityou don't want to have it there makingWatch at: 01:30:40 / 01:31:00grooves alright so by the end of yourthird day of doing mud you've got yourtaping you've done your inside cornersyou've done your butt joints you'd underhorizontals you've done your outsidecorners your paper your metal yourfiller your finished coat hopefully ifthings have dried well you've done yourinside corners on the other side andyou've hit your screw holes two timesmaybe three you've had a chance to goWatch at: 01:31:00 / 01:31:20around and find imperfections fill themup with tape repair anything that needsto be repaired and all that's left nowis the finish codeah wow that's a lot of work if you'reenjoying these videos subscribe to thechannel hit the like button but mostimportantly comment on the videos by allWatch at: 01:31:20 / 01:31:40means or a suggestion of video you'dlike to see let us know we'd love to bein touchwe're at the final phase now last day oftaping if you have issues that haven'tbeen corrected fast enough and you needan extra day don't try to do the lastcoat until you're absolutely ready itWatch at: 01:31:40 / 01:32:00will drive you nuts and you'll end upwasting time going backwards so saveyour final coat until your wall is readyfor it what I want to show you is alittle bit of science of what we'redoing here here's a straight wall nobodywould look at that wall and say oohthere's a bulge in it right but when Iput my level up against it it's got somecomings and goings little shadows anWatch at: 01:32:00 / 01:32:20eighth of an inch here an eighth of aninch there that's because we're buildingwith wood folks now here is my buttjoint okayhate the vanish there but it is a littlebit more movement alright so just thatlittle bit the fact that it opens up toabout a quarter of an inch if I push itWatch at: 01:32:20 / 01:32:40hard on one side or the other this iswhy we have to make it nice and widewhen you look at a wall you can onlyfocus in about a three to four footdiameter if your bump goes from zero tothe height of the bump back to zeroagain you'll notice that Ridge becauseyou are able to focus on that RidgeWatch at: 01:32:40 / 01:33:00inside that area if I stretch that samedepth over a larger areanow you can't focus on the changebecause you have to look left and thenright to see where it went from zero toridge and back again so while we'redoing is we're just stretching the lightover a larger surface area for the sameRidge depth so that it's invisible toWatch at: 01:33:00 / 01:33:20the eye it's still gonna be there it'sstill gonna be a bump you just won't beable to see it so here's how we do it westarted off by putting mud down themiddle right in getting our littleridges we took off the ridges and westretched it out now we're going tostretch it out one more time okay overWatch at: 01:33:20 / 01:33:40here and over herethat's how wide we're gonna make ourjoint okay now we have plugs andeverything in the middle there can be anirritation all we're gonna do is justput mud everywhere because it's finalcoat no we're gonna start where our tapeWatch at: 01:33:40 / 01:34:00joint is and using really good pressurewe're gonna clean that mud off okay andnow I'm gonna use a little bit outwardpressure but not much pretty consistentand we're gonna just clean that off cuzthat's been filled up and raised nowWatch at: 01:34:00 / 01:34:20we're gonna start over here we're gonnaclean that off and you know sidepressure you're gonna clean that off sonow we come over here again we're gonnajust clean it all off secret here is tomake sure that you have nice clean mudWatch at: 01:34:20 / 01:34:40okay no dirt enough you won't get anyscratches then you won't have to comeback and fill up anything when you'redone okay so here we go just want tokeep my hawk nice and clean I don't wantto have the mud on the outside of it cuzit'll start to dry even while that'ssitting here now I have got this stringWatch at: 01:34:40 / 01:35:00here hooked up this is the TV wall so wegot a channel built up here where we canactually pull cables from theentertainment center to the TV that wemounted on the wall about nowWatch at: 01:35:00 / 01:35:20the reason we're gonna fill down here isso that the surface of the wall is thesame all the way around these plugs whenyou're done and you go to put your coverplates on you don't want to have mudhere here and here because then all theway you're all rocking all over theplace and they will be obviously uglyWatch at: 01:35:20 / 01:35:40take your knife fill up these gaps okayyou really want to have that mud depthvery consistent all around your plugsWatch at: 01:35:40 / 01:36:00it's gonna be a little bit messy butthat's what sanding is for start nearthe top really slow work that waterWatch at: 01:36:00 / 01:36:20throughall right and then just kind of finishwhipping it upokay okay back now I'm doing a finishingWatch at: 01:36:20 / 01:36:40coat here and I noticed some dirt in mymud from when I was bent down by thefloor so I had to change my butt I donot want to have junk in my bug when I'mdoing my walls so the same thing we'regonna fill the wall up I'm just puttingthem out on so that I can take it offWatch at: 01:36:40 / 01:37:00this is one of the benefits of using thehawknow I clean the middle put in thatWatch at: 01:37:00 / 01:37:20pressure just a little bit towards theoutsideWatch at: 01:37:20 / 01:37:40the goal here is to make it nice andsmooth now I got some more but now thatWatch at: 01:37:40 / 01:38:00I've taken it up I can stretch thisjoint out a little bit here we goso this is a really wide joint now ifyou're on a ladder you're getting up anddown the ladder you're not gonna be ableto do it very fast you may not be ableto do this nice a job that's why havingthis bench is so handy highly recommendthe rooms this is from gorilla thatWatch at: 01:38:00 / 01:38:20could cost me like $80 such a goodinvestment good to go because it's finalcoat we're gonna take advantage of thefact that we're just going to have thisthinner mud that we made for the finalcoat we're gonna apply it over ourhorizontal joint now this horizontalWatch at: 01:38:20 / 01:38:40joint doesn't need anymore but it'salready filled everything is fine okaywhat I am doing because I'm making surethat this whole wall surface is nice andsmooth and uniform so that when I'msanding I'm getting an amazing result soWatch at: 01:38:40 / 01:39:00we'll come back into this corner allright now we're gonna go with somepretty significant pressure we put it onwe're just taking it off and we're goingwith a lot of pressure on the drywallside you can see how large of an area iskind of foggy right that's very verythin mud all right no one that's dryWatch at: 01:39:00 / 01:39:20you'll be able to sand that just bypassing the block and it's done youdon't have to fight with it you don'tneed a huge dust cloud you don't have tohere okay I have seen people standingdrywall they should be wearing a hazmatsuit this is a toxic material and theWatch at: 01:39:20 / 01:39:40last thing you want to do is create alot of dust so by all means take

touch[Music]so yesterday we finished all of oursanding and priming in the great roomhere and I've seen this a lot so I wantto discuss this but a lot of contractorsI know they'll finish their sanding andpriming and they'll earn a real big raceWatch at: 01:41:20 / 01:41:40to start getting paint on the wall therewhat this illusion of we have to startmaking it look like we're getting someprogress and so they race in to paintthe ceilings they get the first coat onthe walls but they don't take attentionto the detail of the condition of thesurface that they're painting and theidea is we're gonna get to that laterthe approaches we're gonna make upWatch at: 01:41:40 / 01:42:00damage later we're gonna have Nick's andscratches that need to get fixed up butwhat I want to talk about today is theimportance of a good prime check andthis is part of a process that once youhave all your walls Prime and ready togo you have to take a look at all theimperfections that are there before youpaint especially with the ceilings thisWatch at: 01:42:00 / 01:42:20is key you can see behind me we havehuge windows here and behind that that'sthe West so that's what the sun's goingdown so at different times of the dayyou're gonna see different things goingon with a shadowing and lighting in thisroom so it's very important that beforeyou put paint on this ceiling it's gotto be perfectremember the quality is in the detailsif I just go ahead and paint the ceilingWatch at: 01:42:20 / 01:42:40today and then look for problems lateron and touch it up I'm gonna haveproblems because I'm gonna havedifferent levels of acrylic and paintcolor and all the additives that are inthe paint will be differentconcentrations and it's gonna scream atyou we've all seen the ceiling with thepaint roller marks that's somebody whopainted after the fact and did theirtouch-ups in the wrong order so whatWatch at: 01:42:40 / 01:43:00we're gonna do today is just show youhow the process works and what you canexpect to see when you're doing a primecheck that's what I use is just a simplelittle trouble lights on a 20-foot cordoh yeah pay attention and take note herebecause what I am I'm about six feetaway from that corner and traditionallyyour wordsee that you're gonna get from yourWatch at: 01:43:00 / 01:43:20builder your new home constructioncompany or a renovator there's gonna beabout six maybe eight feet if you cansee it from six feet away it's a problemand that's what they'll address but whatI'm saying is when I'm working I don'twant to just say well it's good enoughto pass warranty inspection I want tomake sure that the product that I'mdelivering is of the highest qualitypossible so when I come and take a lookWatch at: 01:43:20 / 01:43:40at this corner with the camera we don'treally see anything there's nothingreally wrong but if I was to bring thelight up here and shine it this way youdon't see anything but if I brought thelight across the ceilingyou got that huge gouge in that corneryou got these huge gaps where the thatWatch at: 01:43:40 / 01:44:00are left after the sanding and that'snot really a problem it doesn't meanthat there was a lack of quality goingon with the workmanship it just meansthat you need to take a few minutesidentify these issues and go over andget these filled because if you paintbefore you do this like I said you'reWatch at: 01:44:00 / 01:44:20gonna have marks now in the corner awayfrom the window you might never see itbut I'm gonna take the time probablytake about an hour to go through thisroom and I'm gonna buy my light acrossthe surface of the ceiling and look forevery possible imperfection that I canfind and once I've done that I can beconfident knowing that this is gonna beWatch at: 01:44:20 / 01:44:40the finest job that I can possiblyproduce there we go and that will helpme to manage my clients expectations andnot disappoint them like listen there'snothing worse than finishing a jobhaving a client walk through and go oh Ilove itmaybe it's February the sun goes downearly in the day something in theWatch at: 01:44:40 / 01:45:00evening they come through the inspectthey're happy give it a couple moremonths when the when the Sun is reallyshining get it down here on 6:30 7o'clock they're sitting down enjoying TVthey look up and they see all theseimperfections the phone rings mybasement looks like junk this time ofday come back and fix it that's a hugeWatch at: 01:45:00 / 01:45:20problem at that point your flooring isin the furnitures in there living in thespace they're disappointed you can avoidall of that by taking an hour goingthrough and doing a prime check to makesure that before you finish it's readyto bewe were just talking earlier about doinga really good prime check and so I'mgoing to show you now a lot of the typesof imperfections that you're going toWatch at: 01:45:20 / 01:45:40find what you're looking for so whenyou're passing your light over your wallyou have an idea what to you expect sofirst of all the screw holes you'llnotice that when you're doing yourtaping job the screw holes a lot ofcases you see that there's an indentthis one probably only got two coatsinstead of three and so really simple weWatch at: 01:45:40 / 01:46:00take our our mud and we just fill it upand pull it tight at this point thatmakes them look like a really big holebut that's not that much of an indentand so we're gonna pull it tight so evenif you forget to sand it you can paintover top of that without any problem theother thing you're gonna find arescratches and Nick's like when we'reWatch at: 01:46:00 / 01:46:20sanding we're going over the surface tochange the texture of the drywall we'renot trying to sand it down until it'sperfectly smooth because that'll justexpose the tape and remove all the hardwork you did getting there so you cantake the back of the knife to get rid ofbumps you can see here we've got someimperfections just take care of thosereal quick these scratches they fill upWatch at: 01:46:20 / 01:46:40nice and simple and now it's a nicesmooth wall the other thing you're gonnasee is just damage to the drywall okayif the hole is really deep don't pull ittight just put a dollop on it so youhave something to sand back when you'resanding then you can sand back to aflush surface the other thing down hereWatch at: 01:46:40 / 01:47:00you can see we have some screw holesthat have got a raised surface on thedrywall that's incredible so what you dois you take the middle in the back yourknife crate a dent that gives yousomething you can fill inyou're at it from two differentdirections and then just like the otherpart leave a little bit extra on thewall something you can sand off by theWatch at: 01:47:00 / 01:47:20time you're done doing all of thatyou're gonna find that there's nothingreally left for home with your wall theother thing you want to take a look atis your corner so most of the problemsare gonna have with the drywall is noton the main surface screw holes a couplepieces of damage but most of the issuesare gonna be in the quarters in theWatch at: 01:47:20 / 01:47:40edges so I'm gonna just take a good lookdone no there we go right there I don'tknow can you see that okay max all rightso we're gonna just follow along thatengine there's two things you can dohere one is to fix all those littlescratches and second is sometimes whenyou're sanding you do too much of aWatch at: 01:47:40 / 01:48:00groove into the drywall and so here youjust fill up that corner get nice andsharp and 90 degrees again a little bentthere scratch there right and then whenyou're done come back in the otherdirection always free your tape towardsWatch at: 01:48:00 / 01:48:20your finish my don't finish is nice andsmooth a lot of times in the cornersbecause you're going differentdirections when you're doing your mudwork they'll meet a little bit I love soyou just throw a little much pull niceand tightly and it just gets rid of allthose little Nick's and scratches thatare there from the taping process youWatch at: 01:48:20 / 01:48:40know sometimes when you're mudding youget a rough inside to things can causethat one is when you sanded there wastoo much dust left there when thepriming went on or second when the knifewas going along during the inside cornerwhich you saw in a previous video if themud wasn't perfectly dry it tears away alittle bit so the way you fix that youwant a little bit of mud you just holdWatch at: 01:48:40 / 01:49:00it tight to the wallclean it and there we go and when we'redone we'll pull out our hands-- andblock we're using mud that's a littlebit browner than the paint so it's easyto identify them after they're dry justWatch at: 01:49:00 / 01:49:20goodbye give them a quick scuff youdon't have to say in all the mud oh butyou just want to make sure there's noridges then you have to go back andprime it once again use the brush Primethe mud so now the whole surface is atthe same stage of preparedness thenyou're ready to paintso the trickiest part - hidingimperfections or doing the prime checkWatch at: 01:49:20 / 01:49:40is actually bulkheads basements arebrutal for this because in a lot ofcases we don't have a full eight feet tobegin with we've got ductwork we have tocover I'm just shy of six feet tall soI'm only a foot away from this bulkheadwhen I'm walking around I'm looking ateverything and it doesn't take anythingfor me to see an imperfection becauseI'm so close but the reality is this asWatch at: 01:49:40 / 01:50:00a contractor we're trying to take ourlevel of care past what's expected of usso that when we're finished the productwe don't disappoint the client and as aclient you need to understand thatwarranty rules are still in effect ifyou can see an imperfection in theceiling when you're standing a foot awaythat doesn't mean that that needs to berepaired it just means that this isWatch at: 01:50:00 / 01:50:20drywall it's not a perfect worldin a lot of cases you know people wouldstipple the ceilings or they would shootthe mud on and they would flatten it outand just do a knockdown texture thoseapproaches hide all these imperfectionsbut when you want a flat surface you'reasking for something that's reallydifficult to deliver and so we're gonnado the best we can we're gonna try to goWatch at: 01:50:20 / 01:50:40overboard and then we're also gonna tryto use our technology and our brain sowhen we doing lighting we're using potlighting here and that downward lightkeeps you from visibly being able to seethe ceiling the same as an upward lightdoes so we're not gonna use floor lampsunderneath the bulkhead and we're alsogoing to use a kind of paint thatdoesn't have any acrylic it's just whatI call dead flat and what that does isWatch at: 01:50:40 / 01:51:00is that I use a product from Gliddencalled ultra hide and it helps to reallyquiet down all the texture and adds alittle bit of a grayness to it so therearen't as many shadows in the ceiling sowhat I can see now after I'm donepainting I won't see later so if I cantake great deal of care nowpreparing my surface and I use goodWatch at: 01:51:00 / 01:51:20lighting and I use good techniques andgood paint products then at the end ofthe day we should have a result that isso spectacular if as a client you seeone or two little imperfections in theentire job it's not going to weren'tcoming back in and redoing the wholesurface and you should just be able tobe happy for that I would think ifyou're enjoying these videos subscribeWatch at: 01:51:20 / 01:51:40to the channel hit the like button butmost importantly comment on the videosby all means or a suggestion of videoyou'd like to see let us know we'd loveto be in touch[Music]well welcome back to our how to drywallseries we're getting near the end we'reWatch at: 01:51:40 / 01:52:00at the how to do the sanding stage andyou know a lot of people think why talkabout how to sand you know we just sandand you makes a lot of myths nobodywants to do it but there are a few tipsand tricks I'm gonna show you todaythat'll make your life a lot easier onething you need to know in a basementwhether it's in the wintertime orsummertime your HVAC system is operatingWatch at: 01:52:00 / 01:52:20so we need to control the dust whetherit has a fresh air intake on the furnaceor it's high efficiency and it uses thecold air return the wall either wayspreading this dust of the home isdisastrous it's such a fine powder thateven if only 10% of what you sand goesairborne it's gonna be all through thehouse and the entire house needs to beWatch at: 01:52:20 / 01:52:40clean so the way that we accomplish thisto create negative air make this roomkind of like a vacuum is we have afamily and exhaust ducting running outthe window and what's happening isbecause it's sealed off the fresh airfrom out here is being pulled throughthis hole picking up the dust andgetting sucked out through the fan thissome guarantees that all the dust that'sWatch at: 01:52:40 / 01:53:00generated in this room is leaving thewhole structure we're not justmaintaining it or containing it in aroom this is what we call negative airyou can see how the flap through thisplastic is pulled inside we have to havefresh air intake it also assists in thecamera work max is going to come in andshow you the system now but before we dothat I guess we've got to get rid ofthis doorWatch at: 01:53:00 / 01:53:20we'll put that on again later all rightso this fan is a three-speed fan andthat's not really rocket science what wedo is we cut up shut up the door withplastic and create this little areawhere we're pushing air out of the roomfaster than its coming in now it'ssimple to set up we don't have anythingelaborate going on here we just haveWatch at: 01:53:20 / 01:53:40this ductwork kind of taped to the glassoutside the windowthere's fresh air coming in the room butwe're pushing out more square feet thenthis window can bring back in so the waywe'd test to see if we have negative airpressure is really simple we simply cuta happy face smile on the plastic doorand if it's not flapping in and suckinginto the room we just turn the fan up toWatch at: 01:53:40 / 01:54:00the next feed mission accomplishedso that's all we have to do in this casekeep a small hole keep the fan speeddown this allows us to work in fresh airand have all of the dusts out of thebuilding nice and simple it's a firststep before you start sanding you wantto contain the dust in your environmentWatch at: 01:54:00 / 01:54:20I think one of the reasons there's nosanding videos on the Internet isbecause people don't want to get theircamera equipment keep this disgustinglydirty so we're gonna show you real quickwhat we've got is a plastic wallcontaining the room and we have ourexhaust fan and our ductwork going outthe window now these types of fans areavailable for rent that they're buildingstore the ducting was a little harder toWatch at: 01:54:20 / 01:54:40find you got to go basically to like afire restoration supplier but I use thison a regular basis on my job site so ifyour contractor I highly recommend thisyour fans are gonna need somemaintenance on a regular basis to cleantheir the fins off but the ductwork youbuy one box at the last about a year andit's just what you do is create negativeWatch at: 01:54:40 / 01:55:00pressure in this room so I'm forcing airout the window and I'm gonna draw allthe air that's clean from the house intomy work space and that negative pressurewas like a vacuum it collects the dustand shoots it out of the room so I don'teven even need a maskokay so I thought I'd go through acouple of details before we turn the fanon it's a little loud so when it comesWatch at: 01:55:00 / 01:55:20to sanding you really only need twoprimary tools one is a sanding block Ilike to use the angled brush because Ilike to use the anglesponge because this corner here isfabulous for going into the corners ifit's all square you don't find yourselfputting grooves in the opposite side ofthe mud so you could do this if this isa small space you're doing you couldWatch at: 01:55:20 / 01:55:40probably use one of these sponges it'lldo a bathroom all by itself no need foranything else small space you know sixor seven bucks in and done but if you'redoing a large space like a basement or abedroom you're gonna need somethingbigger and we've all seen the sandingpoles those rectangular heads aredifficult and they tend to flip over allthe time and it takes a little bit ofWatch at: 01:55:40 / 01:56:00getting used to to be really good at itthe last thing you want when you'resanding is to have the head flip overput a huge chunk in your wall and thenright back to mudding again so Irecommend the radius 360 system theseare awesome they have the taxable headsso you can change it out and put asmaller triangle pad on here but thesethings are wonderful it's just a VelcroWatch at: 01:56:00 / 01:56:20system has a pad when you're getting alittle bit worn you can throw it awaystick a new one on they're good to go150 grit on that paper I think you getthem on 120 as wellI like the 150 for sanding my mud youcan use this 120 for sanding betweencoats on your paint that's just a freeWatch at: 01:56:20 / 01:56:40tip for you so before we get startedagain if you don't have a negative airsystem use a mask okay this stuff can bepretty dangerous especially you'reexposed to it over a lot of time but forme I don't care I'm going negative airI'm gonna demonstrate what you have todo so let's get the fan on you'll noticein our taping video when we're doing ourmud joint we're not trying to put it onWatch at: 01:56:40 / 01:57:00real thick and then sand a whole lot offwe're trying to feather it out we addwater to our mud to thin it down so wedon't have a whole lot of sanding to doso really all we got to do is get ourpad on there and we're not trying toremove all of the mud we're just tryingto remove the ridge you see just alittle bit of dustWatch at: 01:57:00 / 01:57:20just a couple of passes and you'll seethat it's feathered in kind of like aroom of summer days there's just alittle bit of cloud in the air there'sno distinctive Ridge here and that'sreally the look we're going foronce the ridge is done we do the otherRidge you can see how easy this is toWatch at: 01:57:20 / 01:57:40run around and won't flip over on younow I'm happy with that so all this leftis the area in the middle we're nottrying to remove the mud because we'vealready put it on really thin and reallyhard what we're trying to do is changethe texture of the mud so that it's thesame as the wallboardWatch at: 01:57:40 / 01:58:00okay this is the key if you don't changethe texture when you paint you'll seethe difference in texture and to beobvious well we're gonna do just alittle bit of a light sand over theboard that's itnow when you're done you can't visuallyinspect your mud use your hand if thisall feels the same you're good if youWatch at: 01:58:00 / 01:58:20see feel any rough spots oh that's whereyou're gonna know give a little bit moreof attention so that's the basic gist tohow to use the radius 360 some thingsyou have to use the sponge boardit's especially corners so before you doWatch at: 01:58:20 / 01:58:40your corners you're gonna find that whenyou're taping you're gonna have littlechunks here and there just go aroundclean out your corners make sure thatall the ridges and little bits of mud orknocked off your wallhere's your four inch knife for that youdon't want to have your sponge goinginto big chunks of mud because it willtake the corners out and it'll make itWatch at: 01:58:40 / 01:59:00expire prematurely so what we're gonnado is we're going to do the same thinghere we're going to spread the rosy edgeokay putting pressure on the insides sowe're not dousing here and then I'mgonna clean the corner by opening thisplace five degrees okay I don't want toWatch at: 01:59:00 / 01:59:20go like this because it that big 10 inchpiece of sponge if I run it down in thecorner it's gonna groove it all out andit look for awhile so if you just wantto live it a contact in the corner againjust changing the texture don'ts and allof the dents out go back with your primetech and fill the dents in that's theWatch at: 01:59:20 / 01:59:40key to sanding less is moreget rid of the ridges and then walk awayresist the temptation to sanded sayingand saying until I really is smoothbecause it won't be smooth it'll justlook smooththey'll spend all day in this roominstead of 30 or 40 minutes that thisroom would take to the other cornerWatch at: 01:59:40 / 02:00:00again five degrees just a little bitbetter in the edge and then just hit allof your screw hole make sure that youdon't leave any ridges because when youpaint that it will be noticeable andthere we go now double-check make sureyour edges are good that is all you needWatch at: 02:00:00 / 02:00:20to know when it comes to Santa now inhere we have some imperfections butagain the ridges are gone when I comeback after priming we'll fill that inwith them but in our prime check thenthis will be perfect the only otherthing you need to know is when you'regoing around light switches and boxesand plugs trying to be careful you don'tWatch at: 02:00:20 / 02:00:40go like this over and over and over andover again get rid of that Ridge andthen this way because what you're gonnado is pray scratch lines that'll nevergo away okay go on an angle 45 degreesoff the corner and you will not have thescratch lines then you can just give itWatch at: 02:00:40 / 02:01:00a bit of a touch-up in the middle if youneed it perfect every time that's allyou need to know the only other thing weneed to know actually is when you'redone sandingis how to clean up here in a small roomyou can lay down a sheet of plastic mostof the dust will land on the plastic yougently pull the corners together throwit in a garbage bag when you're done IWatch at: 02:01:00 / 02:01:20like to use sweeping compound this stuffis brilliant it's been designed and usedin industry for a lot of years you canjust eat the dust up okay look at thatthat's how I clean up my sanding dustWatch at: 02:01:20 / 02:01:40you can grab your dustpan and throw thatin a bag and your mess is all taken careof if you're enjoying these videossubscribe to the channel hit the likebutton but most importantly comment onthe videos by all means or a suggestionof video you'd like to see let us knowwe'd love to be in touchWatch at: 02:01:40 / 02:02:00so now you can see we got a room sandedwe've got our our dust free system hasbeen removed we don't need that hereanymoreit's all been cleaned up so now we'regonna just prime this and the idea ofpriming drywall is you need to use theright paint it has to be a primer sealeryou can't just use anything and youapply the primer sealer with a littleWatch at: 02:02:00 / 02:02:20bit of pressure when we were paintingceilings we want to a nice and gentlebut we're painting primer we want topush the paint right through the paperto get it the good bond that helps it toseal up so that when we're doing ourfinished coats it's not sucking all ofthat paint into the drywall and sobasically what you're doing is we wantto paint about an inch and a half awayfrom the surface of the wall we want toWatch at: 02:02:20 / 02:02:40start with the ceiling give it a niceliberal coat push it in this is notabout having a thick coat the primersgot a lot of solids in it so a goodprimer is not wet okay so if you boughta primer that sweat is dripping all overyou take it back you want to catchsomething that's nice and thick got aWatch at: 02:02:40 / 02:03:00lot of solids in it and at this point inthe production you don't need to worrytoo much about your ridges that drywallis gonna suck up any paint that hits itand you cannot get a paint Ridge if youdo it doesn't matter because you'regonna be sanding again any way inbetween your coats so this is not theWatch at: 02:03:00 / 02:03:20time to worry about that this is thetime to use some pressure all right whenyou're all done with the rolling and youdon't need to get an even coat here asit dries it'll be uneven so don't worryabout that what your ceiling is done youcan turn around and hit your wall samething leave room from the edges cuz whenWatch at: 02:03:20 / 02:03:40we're all done with the rolling we'regonna take our paint brush outand we're gonna come around and we'regonna cut all of the joints and that'sall you need to know about priminggetaway cover 100% don't cheat leave theedges let's see a lot of guys do thisthey'll prime the drywall and they won'tWatch at: 02:03:40 / 02:04:00paint and brush right in the corners ifyou do that when you're doing yourfinished coats you're gonna have alittle shadow there so don't cheat getit all coveredget it off sealed and then you're gonnahave a lot of success with your finishcoat so we're finally at that point inthe project where things are gonna starthappening really quickly it's time topaint we've done our sanding or primingWatch at: 02:04:00 / 02:04:20or prime check now what we have to do isstart working our way down from the topto the bottom of the roof so we're goingto start off with our ceilings veryimportant so many people do this wrongand there's a lot to know how to do aceiling right so I'm going to go throughall the steps with you first of all ofcourse is you have to go double checkyour prime check take your sanding blockWatch at: 02:04:20 / 02:04:40find those pots for you touched upearlier give them a quick little buffseliminate any other extra mud change thetexture of anything that you really hadto lay in like their quarters again openyour sponge 5 degrees just make sure I'mhere worried about a wall I'm going toWatch at: 02:04:40 / 02:05:00teach you how to paint a ceiling but getall of these areas here back up theperfect is best chicken now we're goodto goWow okay so our spots are all taken careof now it's time to sand the ceiling soWatch at: 02:05:00 / 02:05:20once you've taken care of all yourinside quarters very important a lot ofpeople miss this stage but you need tosand between every layer of paints a lotof times in the paint they'll be dirt inthe air that clings to the paint orlittle dried chunks from the pail fromthe process you always want to stay infirst a nice smooth finish so what we doagain let's take our little radius 360Watch at: 02:05:20 / 02:05:40sander here just a quick passyou're not trying to change anything inthe ceiling or sand out any spots so youare making sure that your ceiling isnice and clean so once your area isclean now it's time to talk about yourtools what I use is a roller cage onWatch at: 02:05:40 / 02:06:00ball bearing this is really nice it doesa great job I like to use microfibercall me crazy but I'll spend six orseven bucks on a good roller any day ofthe week if it's gonna get me the resultthat I want this is a 13 mil dependingon the area that you're painting youmight go with a little larger but I findWatch at: 02:06:00 / 02:06:20that with ceilings you don't want tohave too much of a nap because end upbelieving roller marks so very key knowyour paint this is from Dulux it's aGlidden product called ultra hide it'sbrilliant paint there's zero acrylic inthis awesome for ceilings doesn't leaveany shine who doesn't draw attention toWatch at: 02:06:20 / 02:06:40any imperfections that we may havemissed during our parameter so what I dois when I buy this I have it shaken atthe store it's been sitting here acouple of days now we've got to makesure that it's shook up just roll it onits side give it a good bit of a beatingmake sure that it's mixed thoroughlythrough after about 10 or 15 minutes ofWatch at: 02:06:40 / 02:07:00this you've done about ten minutes toomuch nowthis lid can come off if you can cut theends peel the strip and pull the wholepail open I recommend not doing thatbecause the more air that gets in hereWatch at: 02:07:00 / 02:07:20the more dried to accept ain't you'regonna have if you're gonna use all fivegallons in the same day then by allmeans what I usually like to just pullthe top off pour it into my tray with mylinerhere we go that's about three quartersof a gallon when you're done pouring itout clean off the lid put the stopperWatch at: 02:07:20 / 02:07:40back in okay that'll help preserve yourpaint now you're going to want to do twocoats but before you do your coats youwant to do your cutting the way you cutif you fill the brush with paint byWatch at: 02:07:40 / 02:08:00pushing it into the paint filling theinside clean this off so there's nopaint sitting on the other side thebrush it's all inside the brush alwayspaint from the inside okay so we'redoing ceilings so we're gonna push itinto the corner I'm not gonna worryabout getting a little bit of paint onthe wall as long as we don't have aridge or too much excess there we'reWatch at: 02:08:00 / 02:08:20fine and what I'm doing is just tryingto make sure that when I rule I don'thave to get the roller right up againstthe wall we don't want to risk markingup our wall surface with the roller andthere we goWatch at: 02:08:20 / 02:08:39[Music]you can see that even though thatpaintbrush I nobody paint on the outsidereally covers a large area brilliant[Music]Watch at: 02:08:39 / 02:09:00next we're gonna take our stick nowthese are designed to go together thisis a Sherlock system it's got a littlelock-on pin on it so that your cagedoesn't undone twist on your handle soit gives you a lot of control the oldkind is twist in like a broomstickyou're rolling up and down a wall orsomething they'll start to untwist onyou you'll lose a lot of control thisWatch at: 02:09:00 / 02:09:20gives you great control you want toextend the stick as far as you can goand you want to load this roller upusually takes about 15 or 20 passesreally get it going okay now this iswhere you have to stop and think mywindows are over here light is comingWatch at: 02:09:20 / 02:09:39across this way so my second coat I wantto be rolling in the same direction asthe Sun in case I leave any ridges in mypaint you don't want it to create ashadow okay and when you paint with twocoats of sealing paint you'll go thefirst coat opposite of the finish coatso if my finished coat is gonna go thisWatch at: 02:09:39 / 02:10:00way my first coat has to come this wayso we're gonna do is we're gonna justput it on we're not gonna worry abouttrying to stretch it out too much asmuch as we want to be concerned with notpushing too tightly up against theceilingyou want to roll gently okay you don'twant to see the NAP of that roller andWatch at: 02:10:00 / 02:10:20start to get all compressed becausethat's when the edges start to flare outand you get these big lines nowyou'll notice that while I'm paintingI'm trying my best to keep my handsbeneath my heart this is a long day atthe office if I'm holding my stick upWatch at: 02:10:20 / 02:10:39hereI got make my body work a lot harder topump all that blood up to my arms what'sthe old rule if you have a sore leg orsomething you elevate it you want to getthe blood out of it well if my arms areabove my heart I'm not gonna have anyblood on my arms I'm gonna tire out wayWatch at: 02:10:39 / 02:11:00too quick so this is just a little trickso you can make your day a little biteasier try to keep your hands as low aspossible on your stick there we go niceand gentle again we're not looking for alot of square footage here we're justlooking for an easy coverage there weare very niceWatch at: 02:11:00 / 02:11:20now you notice this is not a pure whitethe client is asked for a Benjamin Moorecolor and I'm more than happy to obligethere we go so there's our first coat onthe ceiling now all we do is do the samething over and over and over and overand over again till the whole ceiling isWatch at: 02:11:20 / 02:11:39finished wait about 20 minutes or so andthen about the time I finished paintingthis room I can come back into thesecond coat right away so when you'repainting your ceilings in the basementyou're gonna have bulkheads you have twooptions you can paint the bulkhead thesame color as the ceiling and sametexture or you can make an accent stripethat's becoming a little bit past sayWatch at: 02:11:39 / 02:12:00most people want to have anything fromthe ceiling and the bulkhead up allpainted the ceiling but the rules arethe same you can't cheat you can't justbring the roller here and slap a lot ofpaint around you got a cut and roll sothe way your cut is it fill the brushwith paint on the inside set your cornerand you just run it across like thisokay this is how you would cut if you'reWatch at: 02:12:00 / 02:12:20using a color up against a finishedceiling to here we don't have to worryabout it because we're also gonna becutting in the ceiling right there we goand the idea of this is we want to putenough paint on this surface that we getthe color but we don't have streaks useWatch at: 02:12:20 / 02:12:39too much paint with your brush you'llhave streaks and that'll be thereforever and it won't blend with yourfinish rule okayall right when it's time to paint yourbulkheads if your roller is full ofWatch at: 02:12:39 / 02:13:00paint like this you're gonna have tentimes the amount of paint that you needokay so what I would suggest is roll outa piece of the ceiling dry off yourroller a little bit then you come backall rightcage down so you don't hit your ceilingand then gently not too much strengthWatch at: 02:13:00 / 02:13:20heregently roll that out and then whenyou're done come back down and just hityour edge to make sure you don't haveany drips after you're done that all youneed to do is let it dry usually acouple hours is plenty give it a quicklights and again same process differentWatch at: 02:13:20 / 02:13:39direction now you can paint
