George Baker is a used car salesman who live in Chino Hills, California and lives in a studio cottage overlooking a golf course overrun by flying golf balls. George is a tinkerer and he touches everything he believe that he can repair. He did mention that his mother-in-law had pulled up to far from the driveway and had just touched the bedroom wall. He had pushed the wall back in with 1x4 lumber to prevent the drywall from falling into the room. When Mrs. Baker arrived home she demanded that he repaired the damage correctly. Mrs. Baker had removed the wood support when I arrived but large 16D nails were on the bedroom walls.
This post shows the six steps on how to repair the damaged wall studs and apply the new drywall to the bedroom.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the bedroom studs were wet and had been pushed inward by the car. The wood wall studs were over 1/2 an inch over the bottom plate (sole plate). The studs needed to be replaced but George was against that so another method was used to correct the problem.

Step 6: Fig.7 shows the final view of the wallboard around the electrical plug. The joint compound combined with paper tape (below) had to be applied to the wall. Fig.8 shows the a second layer was floated using the wall knives (below) and these knives (large scrapers) molded the joint compound to make the wall flat.
