First time homeowner. It's pretty amazing how all those - "We can fix that" problems you noticed during walkthroughs remain undone after three years.

I spent 13 summers as a kid working in my grandpas's woodshop, following around my master electrician/engineer/all-world-handyman dad, or doing random construction crew work. I've dabbled at everything except plumbing, and I'd say I'm an expert at holding. Holding the flashlight, holding the dumb end of the tape measure, and holding heavy things above my head while someone digs in a toolbox.

comment Is it possible to smooth over these drywall imperfections?
I was up to 10 coats on one particularly bad spot. It is ALWAYS easier to re-cut the drywall than fill those holes. Unless you're paying a guy 10 cents an hour, he should buy more material and try again.
