Drywall stagger joints?
2 Attachment(s)
Are you supposed to stagger drywall joints in a corner? Meaning full sheet of wall 1 on top, cut sheet on bottom and full sheet on top and cut sheet on bottom on wall 2 as well. Or flip them, full on top of wall 1, full on bottom of wall 2?

no it is not nessessary to stagger the joints around a corner. you should stagger the butt joints (the non beveled edges) between the top and bottom rows of drywall.

Thanks for the answer phuture. I always thought it to be the case. The reason I asked was because I was watching diy channel yesterday and the guy was saying it was very important that 4 corners not meet in a corner.

Just ONE good reason NOT to watch the DIY channels....

yeah, they definitely tiled over backerboard with no vapor barrier, no membrane and no waterproofing! To top it all off they used mastic to put up 12x12 tiles on the wall.
