Forum Title: finish drywall with no baseboard???
Hey guys, I just got back from a house i am pricing with some details i am not used to seeing. Hoping someone can give me some insight. -The main floor is a 9' ceiling height. -The concrete slab is the finished floor (Never to be touched by mud) The measurement from the floor to the strapping right now is 110. with 54 drywall and my ceiling piece on first that makes it 108 and 1/2 (top down) making it 4 and 1/2 from the floor to the bevel. And he will only put 2 and 1/2 base board on. So i would have to fill the bevel at the bottom, while getting no mud on the floor. Ideally he does not want to have baseboard at all. he wants a 3/8 reveal between the finish drywall and his concrete floor. I was thinking stand the sheets on the walls up and use tear away bead for the reveal on the bottom. But i would think he would need at least 1/2 for expansion. I told him i could give him two prices depending on which method i use. I am wondering what you would do in this situation? I think the reveal would look sharp. but i really do not want to get into trouble and ruin this guys house by only leaving 3/8 for expansion around the floor. Is there an easier way i am not seeing? What would you do? and what would you charge a sq ft?
