Hello. For fresh drywall: I would definitely prime with a drywall sealer. I believe Behr makes one in either a purple or orange can. Make sure you get the one for fresh drywall. Finish coat sheens are really personal preference, but cleaning an eggshell is the easiest.

What’s all this noise about OSB on garage walls? It’s a gross texture and soaks up paint like a SOB. As for hanging things…Are houses being built without studs now; can’t you just find a stud to put a screw in? I’ve got three courses of brick to contend with on the four walls of my shop, so hanging anything is a nightmare.
