Can someone give me an estimate on how long it takes to finish the mudding and sanding for sheetrock? The contractor did the taping and put on the first coat. How many hours should I expect to spend doing the second and third coats myself? This is finishing the garage. Two walls 26' long, 1 wall 22' long, the ceiling which is of course 22' x 26', and then just the small amount around the doors. Also, how much time do I need to allow each coat to dry before I can sand it?
btw: any tips for speeding up the process or getting a smoother finish will be greatly appreciated.
