Question

drywall on skylight shaft walls above ceiling


i hope this question is simple enough to formulate verbally and should not require a picture but do let me know if you'd find one useful.

i will have a skylight (2' x 2') some 3.5' above my bathroom ceiling. everything is framed nicely already. considering that the order of hanging drywall on ceiling vs. walls is important and should be the ceiling first, i though the order might be important here as well. so, should i hang drywall first on the four walls of the shaft that rises up to the roof from the ceiling or should i hang the ceiling drywall first?

thanks

It doesn't really matter. When I used to hang, we liked to do those skylight shafts when it was cooler. You don't want to be in there on a sunny warm day.

so it is OK to make the ceiling DW cutout flush with the shaft box framing and then have the shaft sheet go over it to form the edge, correct?

Yes that is perfectly fine.

Totally agree with sixeightten. Skylights like yours (I like to call them "light tunnels") get hung in the coolest part of the day. As a rule, ceilings are (almost) always hung first. Walls, including skylight walls are hung last...
