Hey arf, I need a hand with some remodeling.

I moved into a trailer home and it looks like crap on the inside. (Hey, no shit OP. )

What can I do clean up these seams a little? I've zero experience with wallpaper/sheetrock/etc.

I want to end with nice clean walls I can texture, walls that don't look like they are from a single wide.

Below are some images of what I'm starting with.

Take it down to the studs and sheetrock it. Find you a good tape and float guy and you are set.

I'd like to, but that's not in the budget.

Tape, mud, sand.

Perfect! Now where do I start to learn about this?

I'd suggest YouTube to start. You would at least be able to see if this is something you would want to make an attempt at.

Hang the rock yourself. Hire out the mud and tape. Never having done it before you will come out ahead of the game paying some one to do the mud work.

Just google it. There are tons of how-to write ups out there and decent videos on how to do it.
