drywall


Hi , I am drywalling a garage and i am going to run the drywall horizontal.
The sheets split the plug in about the middle. In other words i have to notch both sheets. Do i need extra support around the plug? and could this become a problem area. Thanks in advance. I have the 12 foot sheet already.
Thanks in advance.

That doesn't make sense, you're not hanging the drywall properly.

The plugs are in the middle of the wall and the bottom sheet comes up to the middle of the plug laid horzontil and the top sheet comes to the middle of the plugs from the cieling down.

Oh ok, I'm sorry. I was imagining you meant the other way.

It wouldn't hurt to put some blocking at the seam. If it's a garage that is getting the standard treatment, I wouldn't put blocking. If it's going to be a finished space, I'd put in blocking. Takes all of 3 minutes to cut the wood and throw a couple of screws in.
