Drywall application.

Drywall can be installed either vertically or horizontally. Plan your installation so that the least number of seams are created. Use this criteria to choose the size of drywall for your project and plan the application before proceeding. Remember that when two boards butt up against each other at their long edges, both must have a beveled factory edge.

This is the reason ceilings dropped to 8 feet in new construction. Two horizontal sheets with a nice tapered joint along the center. The tops and bottoms covered with trim, although the top trim has since been replaced with popcorn texture up to the corner.
