Drywall sheets are heavy and awkward to move. Their unwieldily nature can be especially difficult when they need to be mounted in confined areas.
I had a garage heater installed in the townhouse that I’m renovating. The heater was suspended using rods that were attached to rafters. I was losing a lot of heat, and I wanted to close off the area using wallboard.
The rods presented a problem, and the only solution that I could come up with was to use a template to make precision cuts in the wallboard. I used a large piece of cardboard as my template, which worked out well. See the images below for more details.
