      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Drywall

Most guys will want to hang it as well, the ones I know anyway. That way they are taping over stuff they did rather than the home owner. I am not trying to say you personally are a hack, but most times that is what the pros run into when they hear someone say "How much would you charge to finish tape and spray?" They will a lot of times bid it as high for finish tape and spray as they would to do the whole jobs themselves. Just something to think about.

yeah, they run into weird gaps, screws not being sunk in far enough ect.

tell them you want a bid both ways, or ask what they prefer. you might not be saving yourself much in the long run

I'm dealing with that problem right now. People wife bought house from just hung it and not well. Lots of gaps any thing that could be worry is. Redoing much of it, taping and painting myself. Finishing room that was started, going to use it for taxidermy.

Normal tape and mud in the Rochester area will get you about $50-.75 per square foot of wall. To hang will run about another $.25-35 depending size, difficulty, etc. These are a labor and material cost.

Any crazy finishes or textures would be more.

There are guys out there that just do the taping and mudding. I know of a few that used to hang but are older now and only want to tape and mud.

$1500 to hang and tape my basement 3 years ago in shakopee. About 900 square feet. WELL WORTH IT. They were in and out in 4 days. Time and minimal Dust were the biggest savings.

I agree. If you're working regular, think of the time you won't have to take off work or lose on the weekends and nights with your family/whoever. Or that you could work overtime to pay for the drywallers and then some. Plus, the taping and mud are tedious, time-consuming jobs that are difficult to do right like the pros. I'm all for do it yourself but drywall is one of those things I'd rather leave to the pros.

I'd have them do the whole dealio.....seems almost cheaper in the long run.

it's not much more for them to hang and the contractors would prefer to tape/mud their own work, not a homeowners.

I hung my own and it takes longer than you might think, if you want to do it right. Cutting for outlets is tough also.
