  1. Question: on a room that is 50' x 12' would it be best to use 12' sheets, run them parallel to the joists and avoid doing any butt joints – or would this cause problems somehow?

  2. I have a house that was built in 1970. I am about to have a new ceiling installed because mine is broken and falling because of a sunken slab foundation(recently repaired). Will my current attic insulation have to be discarded?

  3. nice info they do work but on a crew of hangers it's just not as productive as 2 good gun runners and a good cut man I know 5/8 sucks on the lid but if you're good on the gun you can let go pretty fast . def a must have for solo hanging though I've hung way too many 100 plus pieces on the lid solo I would have given almost anything to have had a lift! lol how much does one usually go for? 600 -800?

  4. Addition to my previous comment. I am specifically referring to exterior walls. Obviously I will need to add studs and top plates to add other rooms but the exterior walls is that necessary?

  5. Helpful! Does it matter what the height of the top plates are relative to the ceiling, as long as the drywall is screwed to the joists above? I ask because my basement studs are cement with a 1×2 stuck to the ends of them with no top plate. (It is a precast foundation )
