First time hanging drywall


I'm putting drywall in a commercial kitchen. I have purchased 4x10 sheets. The ceiling is 10ft 1 in. What is the best way to fill in the gap. Should I hand it flush to the floor and leave the inch on ceiling or vice versa. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

4 x 10 x ? 5/8 if its commercial I believe it needs to be 5/8"

What kind of ceiling?

Is the ceiling up?

Leave the 1" at the bottom, you'll have to do some kind of trim at the bottom with or without gap.

In commercial drywall installation it would be hung vertically so cut the sheet down to 10’-0 ¼’’ and you should be good to go.

Building inspector said half inch was fine it's just cosmetic. We are hanging over the existing drywall which was pretty well beat up

you don't need 5/8 cause you are going on wall board already.

Put a strip of 1/2" cdx on the bottom which will be hidden by the baseboard

I agree about the "gap" definately being on bottom, as said the base should cover it.However you may wanna go a little higher...if a suspended ceiling is going in they'll need to attach their M7 to the top of your drywall.The base should be at least 4 inches, I'd recommend raising yer drywall a couple inches just to be safe.
