Why are the non-beveled(flat) sides of the drywall taped since the resulting hump looks horrible? As a renovator. I cut the flat ends of the drywall on a 45 degree angle on both sides, then I use 20 or 45 (not 90) hot mud to completely fill in the pores of the drywall sides with my finger and then finish filling the cavity with the knife. Hence joining two sheets of drywall at the molecular level. Then do 2nd and 3rd coats with miss certainteed red. This way the walls are perfectly flat and structurally sound for years. I do tape&mud the beveled edges like everyone else. I just don't understand how these bad looking humps don't bother anyone else.
