Hi, My name is Mike Montgomery and I’m a MAKER; a designer, builder, and full-time content creator. Accessibility is my focus with Modern Builds, not simply accessibility of designs, but accessibility in materials, information, and projects themselves. I’ve focused on creating furniture and DIY projects that are simple enough that any beginner maker can accomplish, yet interesting enough that any expert might be inspired. Building and making is becoming less and less of an exclusive hobby and profession. My goal is to reduce that separation even further.

  1. Yeah, I only mix my own hot mud now. But you're correct, it takes practice with regular mud to be able to work quickly with setting-type mud (hot mud). Keep it coming.

  2. That thermostat probably has a bracket that’s attached to the back that is removable. Once you separate it there’s usually some screws to remove the wires

  3. I'm always waiting for a new upload and you never disappoint. I'm learning things I probably never would have otherwise. Keep up the great work. It looks fantastic!!!

  4. 14:01 Oof, that's quite the difference in price, but I guess for a small(er) project it might be doable! And if you're not a regular user of it, if it helps to get a cleaner result it is definitely worth it imho!

  5. I really appreciate your honesty in addressing your happy accidents or mess ups.
    Too many new DIY’ers quit trying bc projects don’t go as smoothly as the TikTok that inspired it.

  6. I recommend you use a product for the inside corners it’s called straight flex it’s a plastic tape and since it’s plastic you don’t have to cover the whole tape with mud just the edges so you’ll get rally god corners

  7. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 you are a fast learner! I saw the way you took all the tips from the first video!
    Proud of you! Now it’s a game of rinse and repeat till perfection!

  8. Loving the videos! I will say, make sure to watch your hands while using the nail gun. Its hard to remember not to hold your hand right against what you are nailing because it can be difficult to hold it securely. Its super fun to watch your skills grow!

  9. Enjoying your videos, keep up the good work. You mentioned Vancouver Carpenter, he has a tip for torn drywall with exposed paper like you have in the halls there. There's a primer you should spray before applying any mud or paint to those torn sections.

  10. if you break through the paper when driving drywall screws you lose all the strength, they sell drywall driver bits that prevent that for a few dollars, or specialty drywall screw guns that work even better that let you dial in the depth perfectly
