Not much here except I need a wall to complete the shop area. I’m not going to go ape making this wall perfect as it is essentially just a dust divider so the garage contents don’t get all dirty… and people can’t hear me swear at my lack of skills.

As you can see, a few things are happening here but I am focusing on the wall at this point.

I guess it’s up to you but you have most of it done and just need a couple strips of drywall that should go up in short order. Would I do it ? Maybe in a year or two I HATE DRYWALL WORK. Good start and enjoy either way.

I also enclosed a section of my shop underneath the stairwell to put the dust collector and my compressor. I sprayed the wall with foam insulation and it really makes a huge difference.
I am another person who hates sheetrock…so I ended up finishing all the walls with OSB. Glad I did. It is cheaper than sheetrock and holds nails better when hanging light stuff like saw blades etc and will not damage as easily if (and when) I bang something into it.
. Everyone who sees it really likes it better than the sheetrock

@a1Jim – Yeah I hear that!
Photobucket

@Termite – If my skills were good enough or my eyesight poorer, I’d go that way but I don’t like the gaps where the sheets meet. The one good thing about Drywall is that it lets you cover the gaps :)

@Beginningwoodworker – Thank you!

If you ask me only crazy people like hanging drywall, but that doesn’t mean I would hire someone else to do it
