tape and bed


I'm trying to keep moving on a house I'm building but I don't have it climate controlled yet. I would like to start taping and bedding soon. Would it be a problem or is a tempered space a must? I'm in Texas.

I'm not a novice to taping and bedding . Just a do it yourselfer and have never had a problem with anything I've installed. Yes it is weathertight. Just wasn't sure if the fact that it's winter in Texas where we have cold nights and warm days would jack up my joints.

Only problem would be drying time and freezing.
I am in Albuquerque, I just did a un heated space yesterday and finished at about 3:00 in the afternoon, with first coat of tape & mud.
Scope of the work is a un attached garage that was converted to a apartment years ago.
We opened up a wall and added 2 sets of 6' french doors and replaced 3 windows, We had to open the ceiling so electrician could jump the wires out of the wall and into ceiling.
So really not a lot of mud work.

I used straight 45 min hot mud and this morning was still not dry, firm enough to scrape, but not completely dry.
I got a space heater going and warmed the place up. By lunch time had a second coat of hot mud and a complete skim coat of topping on it.
Just a little sanding in the morning and will be ready for paint.

Just get a little heat in the enclosed room and it will be fine. Not ideal conditions for drywall, but is doable.
I have done this same thing many times over the years, never caused a issue that needed to be fixed later.

What brand was the chemical-setting hot mud?
