Drywall in unheated room.

My client wants to add a closed porch, unheated, and wants to finish interior walls in drywall. This is a cold weather area. Room will be dry but unheated. Will the drywall hold up?

Sure, it will hold up fine. But just in case there happens to be problems with expansion & contraction during seasonal temperature changes, I'd get the client to sign off on any future drywall repairs. (hairline cracks and such) Letting them know of the possibility up front is just being honest, and you're covering your back at the same time.

Plenty of unheated garages with finished drywall in them, my standard warranty doesn't cover drywall cracks in unheated areas
