Complete renovation


1/2" will be fine on the ceilings if your framing is on 16" centers and your local building code doesn't require 5/8". If it's a "drive under" garage (for example) some counties around here require 5/8" on the ceiling (and the common wall between the garage and living space). If your framing is 24" on center, definitely use 5/8"......

Thanks. I've got 16" centers. My inspector said I'd need 5/8 in the garage on the common wall, but that's all he mentioned. I'll make sure to verify the codes with him when he does the framing inspection.

That's not unusual on the common wall for the firecode issue. And if it IS a "drive under", you may want to go ahead and use 5/8" on the ceiling for your own piece of mind whether it's required or not.
