I thought I would start this thread & keep updating it as I go, I really like seeing other peoples projects from start to finish. I also thought since this is my first time doing this alone, i would ask questions here when i get stuck. I live in a 4 bedroom 3 bath house w/ a 2.5 car garage. Only 2 of the 4 walls have drywall (ones touching the inside of the house) & it has bothered me for a while now (I spend a lot of time in the garage). This was a weird project from the start b/c my walls are not OSB or plywood, they are rare for my area & style of house ... solid gypsum board. Took me a while to learn this, I have a thread about the walls a while back on here about it, you can also see the original pics of the garage there too -- http://bit.ly/2bqYi57 So far, i have used foam and caulk in places that there were holes in the gypsum, around the 2x4's where there were gaps, around the receptacles, and a variety of other places I tough air could come thru. I then found a good deal on some R-13 rolls at HD that were bonus rolls w/ extra in them. I have used 2 rolls so far for this wall. looks like it will take about 1 more to finish this one... I have some questions which i will post in the 2nd post here after the pictures below...
I know the first post is going to be buy a drywall gun or using a drywall gun is better but this is for the people they don't have one or aren't going to need one in the future. What do you guys recommend and what do you use? at Home Depot all they sell is a Dewalt 4 pack of drywall little knobs for a drill, their poor quality and they're all crooked they suck. I am using a Milwaukee M18 Fuel drill. These are the ones I am taking about: Tonight I picked this one up, it looks like it might be a little bit better but I'm not sure if it's going to do the correct screw depth into the drywall. Has anybody used it for drywall? What I really need is one that I can adjust the height and then lock.
Ok i can really use some advice and here here bad. Just spent about 2 hrs looking over the net and still have not gotten any solid info. I have a 2.5 car garage, but only 2 of the 4 walls are finished (as in they hung drywall, spackled over the nail holes, and taped the seams w/ only 1 coat.) The other 2 walls are not finished at all. All the unfinished garages i see, there is usually plywood behind the studs. I have some weird dark brown sheets that kinda look like drywall. (see the pics below). I think the aluminum siding it nailed right to this brown boards. some spots of it have got bumped and fell off and its like a 1/2" if white hard concrete looking stuff inside. this worries me that there is like no good barrier between the outside world but an old board. do i need to cover it all with plywood or some type of plastic vapor barrier and then start to insulate and drywall?? Also i just noticed that there is a shelf in there that we store pool chairs and umbrellas & stuff. someone must of pushed o the poles to get them up there and they hit the brown board stuff. i looked outside and the aluminum siding is now dented out pretty good. so if i were to hit the brown stuff with a hammer or kick it, it would dent the siding outwards when you go out to look at it. something does not need right to me. i at min need to patch any holes or dents in it as well as tape the seams, b/c a hold means that the only barrier is the siding. I need help. There is Only plywood above the garage doors... I am also confused why they only did about 5" all around the top but not the rest of the wall below As you can see below, I used duct tape to patch a section of the brown board that i saw had started to fall apart and come off the wall, im sure there is a proper way to fix it thou and i want to know before its too late..
Hey everyone! Ibe been wanting to get an organizer for all of my paint and taping supplies. Brushes, rollers, mud pan, exc. I was wondering how the 13" milwaukee job box would work? I'd be nice to be able to stand on it for cutting ceiling and other high work. What do u guys think? Does any one know if it'll fit a normal size roller handle?
