100% CORRECT....I might add, GLUE, any and all drywall as it will eliminate many nail pops.Originally posted by gwill
Put the 5/8" board on the ceiling first and then the 1/2" on the walls. 3/8" is only useful to laminate over existing drywall to make a new surface.
You are correct and if you have a gas applience in the garage it must be on the lid as well on the walls that contain the applience , boiler , hotwater heater etc.Originally posted by Deerehunter
I think fire code states if the garage is attached to the house, 5/8 should be put up on the wall that separates the two.
I know its too late to tell you this but I always find it easier to put the ceiling up first " if you have attic access" then to put the light boxes up. A lift for the rock helps a lot you can work by yourself.Originally posted by simple_john
thanks for the info guys.. and good document topdj.
im about done with the insulation and ceilings will be next...
ive got a lot of stuff hung from the ceiling (lights, garage runner brackets, outlets)
im kind of thinking it would be easier to use smaller peices of sheetrock (4*2) and cut out for these things so i can ensure accuracy..
thanks again for the info..
