killing 2 birds with 1 stone???

i have a new 26x28 garage, i have plenty of 7/16 osb around. my question is should i put this in the rafter attic area as flooring/ ceiling. and leave the rafters exposed.? i'm looking to put in an a/c wall unit (12000btu) and would need a ceiling so the cold air won't get out. then i can insulate the walls and put up sheetrock , which is cheap. and i'll paint the bottom of the osb in the ceilng white so the lights reflect. good or bad idea??? jeff

sounds like a plan to me, no reason it shoulnt work. You could put one layer of osb on the undersided put some insulation then another layer of osb on the top. there ceiling and attick, might look into a roof fan ro get the hot air out, there quite and help a lot.

use the osb on the bottom 4 feet of the walls and the gyproc on the ceiling and upper walls. this way a rogue trolley jack won't give you any unwanted ventilation in the walls.it paints up good with the cheapest latex paint and lasts for years as long as it's dry.mike

I put OSB in my rafters for storage, but only 6ft across on center. I'm insulating and sheetrocking the bottom of the rafter (or ceiling) to keep out the heat ...I live in a 100 deg + area. Insulating and venting there with do you more good there then just doing the walls.

Wise advice, use screws on the lower OSB and then you can rewire to your hearts content later on when you move things around. Armoured cable and outdoor boxes are easy to move on the OSB!

OSB advise:

Polyurethane before painting. I used 2 coats of "Kilz", and then topcoated, and it still bled through.

Other than that, OSB RULES !! Screw it on, and you can make changes forever!
