Jay Ray did the drywall work. I showed him the kerf in the wood doors that he would need to wrap the bullnose into. He had not seen this done, and was skeptical before seeing it. He had done bullnose around a door, but it did not have the kerf, which later caused the drywall to crack around the door. My brother, William, recommend I do the bullnose around the doors. He is putting the kerfs in the jamb for almost all the doors he is building these days down in the Houston area.

We removed the wood doors from the hinges so they would not get mud splattered on them. Thanks Randy and Kenny for carrying these to the barn to get them out of the way. They are super heavy!

Jay cutting the bullnose plastic to fit around the windows. He used some kind of spray glue (sorry I don't know what it was called) to attach the plastic to the sheetrock.

Jay cut the bullnose slightly to allow it to follow the curves in the arched doorways.

Thanks for the closeup pics of the bullnose at the door frame. I've been trying to figure that out for a project I'm designing - they did it in the original build and I'm doing plans of an addition and needed to detail the jamb for the new contractor. Many thanks!

You place looks great too!

All the best!
