Reading a blueprint? GYP?


I am looking at a floorplan and there is notation that says 12'-0" GYP. I know that it is twelve feet, zero inches, but what does the GYP stand for? I'm assuming it means Gypsum as in drywall, but I'm looking for confirmation.

I would guess gypsum also, but that's usually "GWB" (gypsum wall board) on prints.

Yep, prints usually label sheetrock as GWB .....not GYP.

Better look into it more closely...

I have heard a few builders refer to it as GYP board also. My guess would also be rock

It should read: GYP BD.

I am sure he forgot to add the BD, which would lead to some confusion.
