Do you have any tips for hanging dry wall on a vaulted ceiling. Such as starting at the peak or the start of the
wall. Can ceiling drywall sit on the wall drywall for support on the edges.

Thanks!!

We just had this done at our house. Measure from the wall to the ceiling. Start your drywall so that you don't have too small of a rip piece at the top, measure down and start at the bottom so you don't have to hold all the weight up. We built a temp. floor on the tie beams to work easier. Hope that helps. If you have too small of a rip at the top, it could sag, you may have to start with a rip at the bottom.
