Drywall Tape

Taping the drywall and kerfing the windows. Kerfing the windows is when a slot is carved into the window trim (must specify when ordering windows) and the drywall corner trim piece runs directly into window. This means the windows don't need extra wood trim moulding.

If you skipped the drywall tape and just used joint compound to fill in the seams, the seams would become visible again after the compound dried. Joint compound shrinks. But, if you are looking for the best home builder in town. I highly recommend Build New Homes. They are experts on this.
