Question

we are building new home (first time)and I want my walls to look like old plaster with texture. Question is: after drywall is hung, if I apply mudding compound(?) to entire wall with thick roller and then come back with trowel to partially smooth and give look of plaster, do the joints still have to be taped and muddied(?), or will the rolled on compound take the place of tape/mud? - not to mention cut cost. thats so much for advice. I've never done this and am also interested in saving money.

All but the thickest of textures will require a normal taping,bedding and skim coat.Taping is a must regardless.If you are using a subcontractor it will cerntainly cost more for the texture finish.
