WOW! that answered your question perfectly huh? after you decifer it, buy one of these http://www.amazon.com/Kraft-14-Magne...s=drywall+hawk

also drywall that attached wall with 5/8" drywall for code. get yourself a 16" drywall twowel and a 6" taping knife. it generaly takes 1 5 gallong bucket of USG green lid joint compound per every 10 sheets of drywall, your fire taping is done, so you might get 15 sheets per?

use the 6" knife to coat your inside corners, thin coats yes. but not so thin to recreate the same lines as you have now! i like to use about a 1/8"coat on each pass, then wipe it down smooth feathering it out to the edge of the knife. another two coats on everything should be good. mix your mud to a consistency that it will stay on your hawk and not roll off all over the floor. with a concave drywall trowel, get mud on the trowel evenly, work your seams from dry into the new wet mud, keeping your trowe at an angle and yourself in position to see what you are doing with the mud, when you change the angle of the trowel to the point you can not see any lap marks being left in wet mud, start bringing tour trowel off the board slowly wiping the mud clean as you pull it off the board. do not sand between coats as the dust will build up in next coat. any excess mud that runs out past trowel line? remove instantly with end of trowel or 6" knife. dont forget to give a couple more coats to the nails/screws, wipe on and wipe off.

when dry, a light sanding just along the edges of trowel and knife lines should give you a nice finish, with lights installed you'll see the garage will seem to be bigger and with lights on the dust and dirt will be more apparent

Well, I do compliment your attempt at English. I can see the honest intent, and if I use my imagination a lot, I can figure out what you mean.

But may I suggest first putting your words through one of the Translation Programs? I speak a bit of Spanish, but using one of those programs sometimes shows me where I may have missed exact wording.

(BTW... See post #9 for what I think he was trying to say.)
