Despite the 5x5 window, the "wrinkled tin" well could inhibit the ability to get a long (12') x 4.5' sheet oriented and threaded down and turned around.
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
What "jonhayden" means - the sheets aren't 4.5 ft. - the ceilings are 9 ft.
So - going to have either have a 1 ft. strip of drywall (if run horizontally)
Or run the sheets vertically.
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.
