Looking for some quick advice - I just hung 3 joists in my ceiling to cover a spot 44 inches wide. I thought I'd measured well, but, it turns out my last joist is 1/2 inch higher then the other two.
Is it okay to install drywall as is, I assume the drywall will bend sufficiently to cover 1/2 inch, but is it safe to do that, or am I placing too much pressure on the drywall that it might snap/crack later?
If unacceptable, would simply tacking a 1/2 strip of wood along the joist that's too high be the way to best resolve?
If you ever looked down the walls, ceilings of most houses with a LONG straight edge, you will see that they undulate in/out. You may never notice 1/2" over 32", but you can shim it out as needed and all will be fine.
