Drywall to Exposed Piling


Any ideas? Raised modular on pilings. Sheetrock to piling that is an outside corner. This is ground level under house with 8' ceiling. I am not happy with sheetrock feathered into piling. Any thoughts, to dress up the piling?

Don't have a clue what you're talking about. How about some pictures?

Pictures would be good.

If you are wanting to dress up the exposed piling how bout some wood or plywood and trims. Make it look like a nice pillar.

Make them look like pillars, 1/2 pillars on outside walls, box them in and drywall, or on your outside walls make your walls thicker and drywall right over them.

If your trying to not have the pilings show at all your going ro have to build some walls to support the rock and float it over the pilings.
Any house I've seen built on pilings is because of flooding or tides from storms.
No since adding drywall if this is the case.

I may nail vertical slats to pole like they do in Florida on the docks. yes it can flood and i don't want more sheetrock. I have the bottom 2' rocked with aqua tough sheetrock. water proof. Its a pole at the foot of the steps which are not in the pic. that needs the detail.

It's water resistant, not water proof. If the back side gets wet there can be problums.
Make sure these walls are self draning.
