drywall inside shed, yay or nay
any reason why i should post drywall inside my 11x9 shed? i was planning to just leave exposed studs and OSB sheathing

Either way is ok. If you want to cover the walls inside, I'd recommend plywood of some sort rather than drywall. Makes for a sturdier job and you can hang all sorts of stuff on plywood easier than drywall....

Yes, I agree. Plywood would be better. Especially if you live in a damp area.

Yep, drywall is meant for a conditioned area without moisture or humidity.....

no its a shed .sometimes that extra few inches can come in handy small shelves in between studs place to hang tools .you will fill a 9x11 shed in no time every inch counts:yes:

You sound like my parents. I hate that thinking, you can NEVER find anything because every square inch gets filled with crap! I like things best clean and organized and if it don't fit, you'll probably never need it anyways. :)

yeah i'd use plywood, or that pegboard stuff you can hang all kinds of shelves and hooks from.

IMO, drywall in a shed is a waste of space. Do part of it with shelves between the studs, part with pegboard. Leave most alone, until you figure out what goes where.

I cover the walls of sheds/workshops/garages with the 1/4" thick 4x8 sheets of pegboard. Makes for lots of storage options and looks nice (for a shed / workshop). You can get it already painted white - so no painting needed (I hate painting...). Quick and easy to put up. Screw it to the studs with drywall screws, rather than nail - makes it easy to remove as may be needed to add electric or something else.
