Drywall installation
We have taken the plaster off the ceiling and walls down to the studs. All insulation has been installed. Do I drywall the walls or ceiling first?

Thanks to all who answer.

Bob is correct, however when it comes time to do the walls, start your sheets at the top, not on or near the floor. It will save time and fustration trying to fit drywall between the sheets.

Install the drywall on the ceiling first. Then install the top sheet on the walls. This method will allow the top sheets on the wall to help support the edges of the ceiling sheets as well.
