Do you have a question about Architecture or construction that needs answering? Jeremy (the Architect) and Keith (the contractor) Olsen are here to give you the straight dope on all your questions about the built environment. We want to talk about our favorite subject-Architecture and building-and help our listening friends along the way.

Jeremy and Keith explain why they avoid taping drywall themselves, what the differences are in drywall taping compounds and explain what a Level 5 finish (shout out to the gypsum assoication).  Listen and enjoy while your hanging drywall.
