I got my stereo running down there now. Nice, quiet room to listen to my cd's and records! The other two finished rooms will be our exercise room, and my wife's puzzle room!

Quickstep is good stuff. That's the laminate brand I have in a few rooms in my house. As long as installed properly, mines been going 10 years plus. I'm currently switching out to engineered hardwood, but the QS served me well.

Hanging drywall horizontally allows you to use larger drywall so you have less joints to tape. You can hang 12' sheets so it's fast to board and less joints to tape, less mudd, etc. Homes require it for structural reasons.

But Often you can't get anything over 8' long sheets in the basement, the walls are less than 8' high and the walls are not structural so hanging vertically may be better in that situation. for example: If the walls are all 7' high then you can cut 13" off all your 8' sheets at once and go nuts and board quick plus you don't have but joints to tape.
