Sheetrock question

I am in the process of building out an addition to my detached garage to be used as a pool cabana/guestroom. It will not be heated during the winter and I want to know which type of sheetrock to use on the walls. I live on Long Island near the water, so it is fairly humid. Should I just use regular sheetrock or use the green board used in bathrooms?

I'd just use regular sheetrock, as long as you put a good coat of PVA drywall primer on it after it's finished you shouldn't have any problems. It would probably be a good idea to choose a paint designed for high humidity areas, it would have agents in it to discourage mold and fungus from starting. The pros in the Painting forum couls give you brand name recommendations. Good luck with your project and keep us posted.
