Re: Drywall - Joint Compound On Cold(ish) Days?

Don't use the pre-mixed compound, use the setting type. Won't shrink, doesn't need to "dry". And you can do sections as you wish, you just mix the amount that you're going to use. It's also far less dependent on temperature and humidity.

This is what "mudders" use; comes in a bag, can mix what you need as you go. Actually "dries" quick compared to pre-mix buckets (Blue/Green/Purple).
Also with tape, I read a good article on paper and fiberglass.
(see Tauton Press Fine Home Building lastest issue).
A good book for folks doing drywall is by Myron Ferguson

(I don't work for Taunton Press. I just find their material and books top notch for home builder/project/rehab)
