You've seen the drywallers at work. The next crew was the "finicheros." (Spanish for "finishers" or mudders, my new Spanish word for the day). Our "Mexicans" turned out to be from Salvador. I guess in the eyes of Floridian construction people, anyone from south of the border is a Mexican. In three hours they had the entire house taped. Here you can see them with their taping machine that applies the mud and the tape at the same time. This is followed by the mudder on stilts who puts on the top layer of mud.
When Randy and Chrissy come next week, they'll help us design the stairs.
