It's not that pretty and I couldn't find a stud for the one side so I put a piece of ply up there and secured it. I must have read my tape wrong because that same gap is wider than I was expecting. I'll put some setting compound in there tomorrow.
Ok hot mud is up and now that everything is clean is probably close to set. How long should I be waiting until I but the green top on with tape? I know once the easy sand is set it still technically isn't dry, should I be waiting a good long while for the joint to completely dry?
Why don't I think of these questions earlier?
Side note: that hot mud stuff is pretty cool asides from having to mix it myself which was a pain since it is my first time with it. Otherwise I found it really cool to work with.
I just wanted to follow up with everyone since I've now finished the ceiling. Have to paint the walls now.
The actual drywall work didn't take too long (been busy with other things) although I did end up having to have a pretty wide joint. Overall it came out really well. I can see the patch if I stare at the ceiling while directly underneath it and even then is mainly a texture difference more than anything else.
