I am insulating my shed, and as per fire code, I have to "drywall", which really annoys me because everything is surface wired, rope lights and shelves up, hooks, etc. I probably have 100ft+ of NM neatly stapled along the top joist..... :furious: I also have to have HomeDepot cut the drywall down to 4x4ft pieces to fit in my car, and the stuff is dang heavy........
Since the drywall is really just as a fire block, is it okay to install it like seen in the picture, leaving the top joist exposed, notching out the cable entrances, but covering the insulation and everything. I can drywall the outlets and whatnot nicely, and extend them with a mud ring, but I am not pulling up all the stapled wiring, ruining it, and replacing it, and fishing it through the 2x4's, along with drilling tons of holes in my structure.
Sorry no can do…
