Drywall finishing


Two joints to contend with. Inside corner joint and a Butt joint just 12" away from each other. Taping & finishing the inside corner brings me into the butt joint area. Now when I go to tape and finish the butt joint, how can I feather the side of the butt joint leading into the corner? No room to work without disturbing the corner. Appreciate any help on this matter. Thanks, Jim.

Drywall finishing


You will just need to finish both together. I know it sounds hard but it's not that bad. You could finish the corner, let it dry then finish the butt joint.

Sometimes you just gotta do what you just gotta do.

Dave, thanks for responding. How would I accomplish the feathering of the butt joint going into the corner, after finishing the corner joint? Thanks, Jim.

Drywall finishing


You have to blend both the corner and the butt seam together.

Basically, you don't feather the side at all that is going into the corner.

You need to tape that corner all the way out with a 12" knife and feather the butt seam on the side of the wall (not the corner).

It sounds tough, but you can do this. If you're concerned about how the sheet above or below it (with out a buttseam) will look, then blend it in also. Make the other sheet's corner a little wider to match the Butt seam sheet.

Like this:


(Corner)<----12" COAT----> (Buttseam) ---FEATHER-->


Hope that makes sense..

Buid Well;

Thank you! You said essentially what Dave suggested, with the exception of the following quote: "Basically, you don't feather the side at all that is going into the corner". That was the key phrase that I was looking for. Appreciate the help. Jim,
