Yep, the garage is attached to the house. The wall is already drywalled when I bought it and it is my understanding that it has some fire resistance to it.

Kinda tough to tell from the pics, but it looks like the garage is attached to living space (your house).

Not sure what the building and safety codes are where you are, but around here "code" is 5/8" Fire Code sheetrock/drywall and fire stops in any abutting framing to living space, in any garage attached to living space.

Even if it's not "code"... it still might be a requirement by your insurance company to cover you against any future loss.

Either way, it's WELL WORTH the small extra expense.

We use 5/8 on the lids because of the sag..You can rent what we call a sheetrock jack from a local rental place..just think of a really big scissors jack tall enough to jack the rock up to the ceiling..makes for a real back saver and is real helpful for the guy that does not hang rock for a living..

The guys have you well sorted out on the insulation deal..I put mine up then hang the rock..getting too old to be crawling around in the rafters..that can even be a bit of a zoo for the young guys..

You could strip it with 1 X 4 furring strips put up perpendicular to the ceiling joists and put the strips on 16 in. centers....it would never sag then. Thats the way I did all of the ceilings in my house.

Why is drywall installed on the ceiling first before the walls?

When you do the walls then the drywall will butt up underneath the ceiling dry wall leaving a joint to the side to tape and fill with sheet rock mud.... the other way the crack is harder to tape and fill...you can do it either way...its just a little easier when the ceiling is hung first.

Thanks homebrew I didn't pay any attention to his location. I guess that keeping the heat out could be different. But I do know how to keep the heat in.

But in in regards to your project it looks like you are on your way. And remember anything is sill better than nothing.
