I hate to the "that guy" but.....why the sole plate in the doorway? And it doesn't look like there is any weight bearing on that giant double 2x header

damnit! Where the hell is my wide putty knife?

And why did no one tell me that the self adhesive fiberglass mesh tape peels off from heat/humidity if you leave it for more than a day or two before mudding it?

:argh:

I used to use the mesh tape until I discovered the paper tape; way better IMO. You'll want to make sure to embed the tape in joint compound (whether its mesh or paper) ie lay a bed of joint compound in the seam, then embed the tape in the compound then feather it out
