Rent a lift there like $30.00 a day where I'm from, hell even if you use half a lift is still worth it.

Drywall into Ceiling Joists?


5/8 regular is fire resistant? I thought this was a special drywall called something like type x that had to be used?

guess i'll have to research this for my house, because I only require 1 piece against my garage/house and it has to be type x not regular drywall

My thought too: We have beams that we hung 20+ years ago with 1/2" Sheetrock that still have zero problems....

5/8" Type X sheetrock is "Fire-rated', not "fire-resistant".
It is rated as "one hour" fire protection per full wall layer.
