So how long do you hold the drywall so the glue dries? You have got to be kidding right?
Get the joists to no more then 1/4" (I always use at least an 8' level)Doing a lid you put a couple nails in the sheet to hold it up complete the lid and come back and screw it. That size room would take about 2 hours max screwed and ready for inspection.

The world is full of shallow thinkers and I'm thinking it is getting worser and worser as time goes on. You have got to be kidding right?

sounds like a job for the green guy: hold this sheet of 4x10 drywall on the ceiling for approximately two hours while the glue dries, I WILL be back, promise.

I've never done it either or seen it done where I work.

However I do know they do it in some areas, I think what the process is to lay a bead of glue on the joists/studs, then board and screw it off as normal. As far as I know anyways that's the difference.

Funny how things are different in different areas.
