For what reason? There's no logical advantage, you're just making the next step more difficult for yourself.

Where in Toronto do you do most of your work?

I am also from T.O., and in my area there is a lot of construction going on.

I hope Willie is still subscribed to this thread

I clicked on your link about the butt-board construction. Looks like a great idea! The poster board it mentions...is that just regular bristle board, like kids use at school? Doesn't seem like that would create enough of a recess...or does it?

ive always thought you hang horizontal so that you don't have one big long seam all the way down a stud. Staggering the sheets horizontaly makes it so the studs can't move side to side

Just keep it closer to 1/16" than 1/8". The 1/8" thickness of poster board will force too much of a bend in such a short distance. The paper surface won't take that, and the screws will cut through.
