why drywall?

Why drywall? 

We chose to use drywall for our interior wall cladding for several reasons:

  1. Aesthetics: we wanted a smooth, bright, white surface with minimal texture to help make the interior of our house feel more spacious.
  2. Health: drywall has very few ingredients, no off-gassing and is a healthy solution for indoor air quality.
  3. Cost: drywall is one of the least expensive wall cladding materials available.
  4. Vapor Barrier: properly installed, drywall acts as a vapor barrier.
  5. No Cracking: we figured out a way to install our drywall without conventional taped and mudded seams, so the joints can flex in transit, if needed.  We haven’t had any cracking problems!

    Hey Carrie! Lee here from Boneyard Studios. Any way I can pay a small consulting fee just for consultations on drywall install? I’m considering going with that as well. Message me: lee at boneyardstudios.com. Thanks!

    I am also curious/skeptical about your drywall technique. This is something I have been giving a great deal of though too as I have worried about cracking, et.

    how does the drywall cope with moving around?
    I have heard and read that TH’s have a tendency to give when transporting, and in that case I would suspect that drywall would hurt from it?
