If this is strapping for drywall, usually its installed from top edge working down.

So start at the peak is what I would do

Just curious about why you would strap out the ceiling for sheet goods?

Not sheeting right away. Space for wires, Trusses arent spaced exactly....

I usually check overall length for division of 4', OSB at 3" wide rip doesn't sit still for long if a vehicle parks there (humidity).... install waxed side toward you.
