Yeah, I'll measure it again, but it seems like it would come down okay. I don't have to make any kinds of turns. I have a good 18 feet in front of the window to slide it straight down through the window. Worse case scenario is I can cut them down to 11' since my longest wall is 10.5'. I've never done any drywalling before so the less seems the better

No, the sheets are 54" wide so I can stack 2 sheets to make the 9' ceiling. You have to special order them though. Home Depot quoted me $19 a sheet. I'm surprised these aren't common now since most new basements are 9'. I don't want to hang vertically.

54 inches wide? - that's cool -
you should still be able to get them in.
We don't like "special order"!
We would hang them vertically -
No "butt" joints.
Whatever "floats your boat"!
