Question

Drywall bottom of stair stringers question


I am in the process of drywalling my basement. I was wondering if it is okay to attach drywall directly to the bottom of the stair stringers that are exposed from the upstairs or do I have to frame slightly off the stringers? Any advice would be appreciated.

it is only considered a "fire guarded" stairway if the drywall is taped and mudded.
