You can build a hatch for the ceiling access. PM me if you want a diagram.
Thanks, right now in the middle of insulating and it is warm out so just sweating my but off.You can build a hatch for the ceiling access. PM me if you want a diagram.
You also must have access to all electrical junction boxes (they can not be covered by drywall)..... and only counted 3 hand holes that will have to go in for shut off valves. Now time to insulate!:T
I did count them and it is only 3 the other stuff I can move into the utility room.You also must have access to all electrical junction boxes (they can not be covered by drywall).
To late to decouple the walls from the joist's. Does it make that much of a difference if just left the way it is? I will be using the hat channel for the ceiling drywall and that will be connected to the joist also or?You can try an exterior door with weatherstrip. Or two of them such that when closed, they create an airlock.
Decouple the drywall from the joists if possible
Sorry I am used to carpentry but not this kind so it's a bit new for me.I was referring to the ceiling drywall on the joists. Clip + channel would do it.
Walls are fine as-is
Sound away, I would rather buy from you guys since I did join your site.Many places sell many clips. To directly answer your question, we do, though I don't want to come across as a commercial.
I will be using 1/2 drywall and maybe Green Glue with a second sheet of 1/2. This would be Ok?If using the proper channel you're good to go. Unless you exceed two sheets of 5/8". Then you have to change the pattern, with rows every 16" instead of 24"
