Knotty pine ceiling - gyproc before or after?


We are going to put knotty pine on the vaulted ceiling of our newly built cabin.

Should we put the ceiling up first? Or gyproc on the walls first?

We want to ensure that if there is ever any leakage from the roof we can easily replace a few boards - so we're thinking gyproc first. (The roofing is metal ... and has a "blueskin" membrane on the plywood - so we are hoping we've taken all of the available steps to avoid leaks.)

How much does the sequence matter?

Thank you!

The sequence doesn't matter in your situation all that much but typicaly the lid (ceiling) is installed first. You can then have a nice crisp transition from rock to pine! But it could be done the other way too you just want to make sure your cuts are clean because you wont have that 1/2" or whatever to cover your end cut. Unless you go ahead and install some 1/4 round in the corner or some sort of trim. Many options but it is up to you!

I believe that it is best to install the sheetrock first. Reasons:

1.) Less possible damage to installed knotty pine. Sheetrockers and tapers work like a storm, and the tendancy to damage a connected finished surface are likely, even if it is a ceiling.

2.) Knotty Pine may be pre-finished and installed (best way). If sheetrock is installed and sanded after the ceiling, then there will be ALOT of dust all over, and in the grooves. Knotty pine has areas of rough surface, these may require scrubbing to remove the layers of dust.

3.) Generally, in 99% of ceiling installations, a trim-molding, of some kind, is installed around the wood board's perimeter edges. This makes up for any spacing that is left. It is best to leave a small gap for expansion anyways, as the boards are wood, and will expand and contract slightly, as all wood does.

Example: Installing pre-finished T&G Knotty Pine, after the drywall is up and finished.



Nail holes filled, and Trim-molding installed around perimeter:
