So I made a total rookie mistake when framing out my pony walls. I cut my studs to 46.5", and finished framing it out. With the bottom plate, it's a perfect 48"! ...


But with the top plate added, it's now 49.5".

The bottom of the drywall is entering a stairwell and covering a joist, so I can't just raise it up by 1.5" and add moulding.

I've looked for some 54" drywall, but I can't find any around me (and it seems like it's mostly special-order, and I'd only need 2 sheets anyway...)

I'd really like to avoid having an extra seam, the whole point of me putting the wall to (the height it was supposed to be) was to have one sheet of drywall with no seams.

Any thoughts?

54" drywall is pretty standard, I'm surprised you can't find it. Have you called a couple contractors to see if they think the same thing?
