ok i am getting ready to tear down that wall and take that fan out as well. i know i need 5/8'' fire rated drywall and fire resistant drywall tape. if insolation is good i will leave it unless mice got to it. few questions though..
1. should i leave the drywall 1/2" off the concrete floor? i want it to fire and gas tight as well as no mice getting back in.
2. should i just drywall to the studed wall or should i put some vapor barrier if the interior wall doesnt have any?
either way the new wall will be alot better than what i have now. alot gaps, all exposed seams and the huge hole in the wall for that fan
