Finishing a Garage
I am thinking about finishing my garage. Currently, the ceiling and all walls connected to the house are finished, so it just leaves 2.5 walls. When I measure the height, I am coming up with 9.75 ft. (can this be correct?) What would be the best course of action with this height: should I go with 4x10 sheets, and hang them vertically (which I understand is more difficult), or hang them horizontally still, leaving almost 2 feet at the bottom to be completed with joints? Both options make me nervous.
Also, how possible is it to complete this project by myself? I read that the 1/2" sheet rock is about 40-50 pounds, which doesn't seem too bad, but I can imagine it could be unwieldy. Ideally, I would like to be able to do this by myself.
Thank you for any insight!
