  2. I'm absolutely loving these videos! Not only they wonderfully informative, I like playing the long tutorials whilst DIYing…somehow, they motivate me to stay energised and enjoy the process xxx

  3. Getting ready to drywall my entire upstairs…my sister and I bought this 80 year old, 1200sq ft house in November 2017 – first thing we did was gut the entire second floor (3 bedrooms – now converted to 2 with cathedral ceilings) because only a few outlets were grounded and everything from floor to ceiling was popcorn stucco…almost 2 years later we are finally at the home stretch. (thank goodness we had other places to sleep!) This was my first reno and I had no clue how much I was getting into.. a lot of lessons learned to say the least! Your DIY vids make me feel sooo much more comfortable tackling this project to its completion. Thank you so very much!

  4. Great. I killed my back hanging ceiling bord Wow. Just cut showed me a ton. I do it all when it comes to house repair remodel gut jobs. And dry wall worst. I can't wait to use your techniques this week. Thank brother

  5. Your vids are amazing! After hiring a couple of sloppy workers who claim to know how to do stuff, I have decided I am much more capable myself and why waste another dollar on someone who doesn't take pride in their work. They do it fast, sloppy and cheap. No thanks. I will do everything I possible can, by myself. And you're helping me to do it right. All these pro-tips are total gems.

  6. give this guy an 'a' for effort, but although he is doing somethings right, there's a lot of misguidance here. I've been drywalling since i've been 18 years old. learned how to do it by hand like he is showing, now we use mechanical tools, mudrunner…bazooka, banjo…. i don't get too fancy but after 30 years i can tell if someone knows what he is doing. This guy is rated about a 5 out of 10. Not bad, but it pains me to see this trade not being taught 10 of 10 correctly.

  7. Good video
    Just the applying part of the mud is not agreeable to me.
    I don’t use a hawk and a three inch knife.
    Instead I use a pan and ten inch knife and apply the mud in a string thread like manner by working the knife on the inside of the pan with the exact amount of mud and applying it in the exact place where it needs it.
    With a little practice it goes on there pretty quick. I tried both ways

  8. Great Job! keep it up! Just one question, which brand dry wall cutting machine are you using? Please recommend me. Thanks!

  9. I've been a building contractor for 38 yrs. and this is the best tutorial I have ever seen. I only wish it was available sooner. Thanks.

  10. I can’t thank you enough. By far the best how to video. You sir have saved me so much time and aggravation not to mention a lot of money!!! Thank you!!!!!

  11. Jeff. I'm impressed with the way you explain your techniques as your doing it keeping it simple. Being a beginner I notice that i'm more confident doing the work after watching your video. I'm more neater , but still need more work in that . Just your explaination in cutting the drywall in simple techniques with just the razor and little hand saw had me quicker. And yes , those anoying screws drives me nuts , I have been enjoying your videos watching the same parts over and over . Thankyou very much !!!!!!!

  12. I need a man to do this for me:( I don't know what the hell to do what a joke, I Have nothing but hatred for my noisy neighbour

  13. wow man. I've learned so much watching this entire video. I'm so glad I've found your channel because there are a few things I need to learn as a new homeowner. I've watched your video on painting, pluming, and now this one on dry wall.

  14. Greetings to our friends in the North. You have great advice. My husband, son and I, we enjoy watching your videos.

    I want to put insulation in my attached garage in a house that we are currently being built. I notice the builder has only put insulation on the house side, but no where else. I want to insulate the entire garage to use as a hangout area because we have no basements down here. Would that cause a moisture problem? Also we have a walkup attic space with blown-in insullation on the floor.. Could we remove the loose insullation and put insullation in the roof and drywall the space to use the space as another living room. Thank you for your suggestions.

  15. Maybe you could do a video on picture-frame mouldings and other custom finish carpentry. Thank you for your great videos.

  16. This was the most helpful video I've watched in years. Your instructions are so clear, and your hacks for mudding/taping are amazing!

  17. Jeff I really appreciate your videos they are some of the best I’ve seen even to that of “This Old House”. Anyways I’m about to redo the drywall in our bed room the problem is our attic has blown in cellulose insulation which is great but when it comes to replacing the ceiling I am not sure what would be be the best way to take it out and keep it for when it’s ready to be placed back. Should I bag it or just place it off to the side of the house that is untouched? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

  18. Hi First thanks for your channel, second I bought a house with basement and I don't know if I should warm the basement during the winter or not. I heard it's good for the walls but I saw a video on youtube which told contrary. what should I do?

  19. Hi Jeff, I'm getting some of the walls that were damaged repaired now. One thing the cleanup group did was cut the corners like everything else, about 2 feet above the floor. That cut corner beads. What is the best way to attach these? Can they be "joined", or should I tear the entire corner off and put on new beads?

  20. The worst thing I saw was not getting your boxes set before you started the drywall. Oops..I'll bet after that sheet, you went around and changed the other

  21. Darn good at this stuff. It's not something you can do this well just by watching. It takes some time to build up to this guy's skill level. Frustrating for most at first attempts. Second, attempts still frustrating. 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and so on until you have done about an entire house worth. Then you have started to build some apprentice skills. Just because you can do it does not mean you have mastered doing this fast enough to actually earn an income, or complete a job in no time at all. Practice, practice, practice. That's what it really takes. Great video for people who are wanting to learn the correct technique.

  22. Excellent video… I’ve never done drywall before but I’m doing a pretty big bedroom right now. Framed out the ceiling (first time framing), drywalled the ceiling and currently putting the walls up. Can’t wait to do the rest and see the finished product! You are an brilliant teacher!

  23. Hey Jeff, I had a question. I cant find the machine mud that you used. I found the SHEETROCK Brand Plus 3 and was wondering is that would be good to use, or would you suggest a different type of mud?

  24. Watched this without blinking and I will have anxiety for the rest of my life having not seen any colored paint, flooring, or furniture added.

  25. Speaking as someone who has renovated 5 (rental) apartments "for fun" and who went a little crazy with the Venetian Plaster, back in the day, I really wish I would have seen your videos sooner.
    Speaking as someone who is a (so called) 'Fine Artist', I just want to say how much respect I have for your high standards, expertise, and the pride you take in a job well done.
    Thanks for sharing your wisdom with the rest of us Jeff.

  26. Starting a DIY drywall job tomorrow. Have done drywall before, bit this video was a great refresher. Great tips and tricks.

  27. You gave me a lot of information… At least now i know who to blame when i botch my projects, hehe and yes I am kidding.

    Super info here, glad i stumbled across you on youtube.. all i actually was looking for was how to build a High tech bed and spent the next past 2 hours watching you.. thats saying something 🙂 Good job

  28. You have a channel with great content, you have a wonderful ability to teach. Thanks to you I set up a channel for drywall training videos in Israel – In addition, I have a dryeall training school – the videos are in Hebrew (soon in English) but connections can be made-

  29. I’m really enjoying this comprehensive video. I know have the confidence to take on repatching holes left from whole house pipe replacement AND replacing basement paneling with drywall. Thank you.

  30. Hey Jeff
    So I bought a house renovated by an idiot. He didn’t put any metal corners on his outside corners. I have two little kids who keep bumping in the walls and it’s getting to look like garbage. Question is: is possible to put them and remud the corners ?

  31. Thanks so much for the video! But I have a few questions if anyone could answer for me. I am planning to rework the flooring of a restaurant by myself. Is it possible to apply self levelig mortar on the existing tiles? Also, is it a must to apply any polishing on top of the mortar? I wonder what the transparent product exactly is that he applied on top of mortar (sorry If I missed it)

  32. I was deceived!! Thought my room was finished after watching this incredibly detailed and exceptional video lol. Now the sad part is that I really still have to go tackle my drywall.
    I feel like I can really install drywall like a pro……………we'll see what happens……

  33. How do you blend if you only have to do a half wall of drywall? My house was flooded I have to replace 4 ft. The whole house has an “orange peel” finish. I assume I have to sand 12” or so of the orange peel texture off in order to blend drywall and then finish with the orange peel texture? Maybe you know of an easier way or you already gave a video on this?

  34. This tutorial is awesome. Thanks, Jeff! One question though – why not put drywall vertically? If it's 4'*8', there shouldn't even be more seams there!?! It seems for a small wall it might make sense?!

  35. I avoid doing any sanding by using a wet drywall sponge that has the rough material on one side and smooth sponge on the other side. I chase out any problems by dipping the sponge in a bucket of warm water and squeeze out the excess wipe over the problem area and follow by passing back over using the widest knife or smoothing blade possible for the area and you can take down any high spots by using the rough side of the sponge. They make smoothing blades up to 48" wide and when used with a spray on joint compound there is very little that would need attention after that. No Sanding, No Dust, No Fans, No Mess, No Problem!

  36. This video training is great. As a property owner at least I'll know how it's supposed to be done when watching any workers we hire.

  37. I have done drywall and taping in three of my houses and I will say I do a pretty good job. I'm now redoing my rec room and dreading the taping and sanding. I'm half way through your video and love it. I have learned so many things can't wait to get to the taping and hoping I learn that taping is a lot easier because i'm going to learn all the tricks from you.

  38. Greeting Home RenoVision… Great video and good tips you share with us, but why you don't use a mask for protection, gloves and goggles.

  39. Someone mentioned that a 4 x 8 should have 48 drywall screwed total on around four sides ? It sure as hell seems a lot . your comment Bob

  40. This is my 3rd video and wow you are a great teacher! My father was a contractor and he taught me many things but some topics we never got into. You remind me of him how its easy for you and easy for you to explain….love these!
