Drywalling garage ceiling: joist hangers protruding

3109 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  rdy2go
I am going to put drywall and insulation on a garage stall which was added to an existing garage. The ceiling has trusses on the inside half and half-width joists at 90 to the last truss which is beefier. The problem is that some of the joist hangers protrude under the truss almost 1/4".

The question is how forgiving is the sheet rock with this? Do I need furring strips?

you can do the strips or notch out the back of the sheetrock. PIA buts faster than adding strips.
