How to frame in-between joists for drywall? (quick Q)


Ok, how do you guys frame this area (towards the left of the pic) to support the ends of ceiling drywall pieces? The top plate on the load bearing wall in the left of the picture is level with the bottom of the floor joist.

Without some sort of framing I wont have anything to screw the end of the sheetrock to.

Thanks.

That area usually has a piece of 2x material nailed down to the top plate,and sticking over the edge at least 1".
Should have been in before the foam.

Thanks. I did that on a couple other walls already but figured there was an easier way. Im using a pneumatic nailer and it doesnt fit up in-between the joists so It would have to be done by hand(guess I figured there was a better way with a nailer).

P.S. Its fiberglass, not foam.

......you could always hold the deadman in place & run 3" drywall screws into it from the open side......lots easier than trying to nail in confined space.......unless you get ya one of those pneumatic "palm nailers".....saw one over at Harbor Freight for about $20

Remove the insulation and install a 2x6. Screw through the bottom of the double plate with 4" screws.

Cut nailers to run perpendicular to the floor joist so that the other end rests on the top of the double plate. Put a nailer in every 16-24" , whatever distance you want to have between screws when you drywall. Screw up through the double plate like Ron said and toe nail the other end into the joist.

The Nailer works really good for things like that.
