Yes it would be... I do plan to make it so a full sheet fits. I did not trust myself to cut/measure correctly on the first try.
So I left a few inches until I could get the drywall sheet and a better ruler. I still have to cut out the section behind the new hot water heater which is bigger than my old model. Someone will have to help me move that out a bit.
I wanted to compare to the other areas in my kitchen but it looks like the drywall does not touch the floor, it sits just a few inches up, and that gap is covered by the trim? Thats the other reason I had to research and still do have to figure out where exactly where to draw my line for the final cut.
Im using a hand held drwall saw a little bigger than a kitchen knife. I don't own any power tools for this job except a drill.
No worries....I will read the drywall forum before I start. I have never hung drywall. I have done touch ups with mud before I paint, and thats it. I do a good job of that because I'm patient.
Got someone else to fix the wire mess that goes into the wall. He is going to install what looks like a breaker box but its for home internet cables/tv cables etc. Looks nice and sits in the wall cavity and will have access pannel in the garage. Cables run from that through conduit to the crawlspace.
