And remember that when you're painting, do the trim first ( base, casings, etc. ) and then cut in the walls against the trim so that you can roll quickly. Put masking tape on your base top so that splatter won't fall onto your beautifully painted base.

Wife painted trim separately outside while I did the walls and celing with a spray gun. then just nailed and calked and on to the next project...

In new construction you sort of can get away with that or if you've taken all the trim off but most people will not do that in their lifetime. also, most water based caulks will not maintain their color over time or their integrity unless painted over. Personally I installed new trim, caulked and then sprayed for full effect and then would cut in the walls but have also sprayed walls and ceilings and then installed trim but usually would have to do touch-up after because the walls would get nicked by installing the trim.

Yeah I just went with DAP acrylic calk and did all my pre cuts and took the baseboard outside to be painted while I painted the walls and ceiling. once I was done I slapped the baseboard on called did a quick touch up and moved onto a new project.
