Jeff and Chris putting up drywall/sheetrock. Not necessarily funny or educational or informative. No "how to DIY" home remodeling project. Just us putting up insulation and dry wall in house. Buy a home for sale and do your home Improvement yourself. It will save money and you will learn new skills.

This is not a professional job, but better than some hanging drywall videos and sheetrock professionals, so called, that I have seen. Todays contractors do things as fast and cheap as possible and charge the homeowners premium prices for sub par work. For example, my friend hired a "professional" contractor to tile a kitchen floor. The floor was horribly uneven and some of the worst work I have ever seen. Another friend, I have, hired a guy to remodel a kitchen. The kitchen was gutted to the subfloor. The guy tile the floor and did a fine job, I must add, but took the deposit, of half the job cost, and never came back. I went over his house every chance I got and did everything from hanging cabinets, running brand new plumbing, electric, installed dishwasher, countertops, sink and finished the drywall. I made him paint though. I hate painting for some reason. I would rather frame a house then paint one. The drywall in that kitchen was a mess and needed some major repairs and even some sheetrock panels replaced. The homeowner is more likely to do a superior job since he or she will take the time to learn how to do it right and take the time necessary to do that job instead of rushing through it. The DIY homeowner will also have the choice in buying better quality materials especially since they are saving money on the labor.
Supposedly you should hang drywall from the top down, but that is so you get a tight corner to the ceiling and space off the floor. It really doesn't matter if you are going to put up crown molding. What is important, is leaving enough space from off the floor so the vibrations and movements of the house settling will less likely crack the drywall if there is no space for relief. We left plenty of room off the floor by using shims which you can't really tell in this video. We also left a little space between the sheetrock panels to allow space for vibrations and foundation shifts. This is not a common practice with quickie jobs you get for a sub par contractor, but something I like to do as a DIY.
This sheetrock hanging video description was not meant to bash good professional contractors, just bad ones and there are more of those than we need. We did this hanging sheetrock video for fun and sold this house for double the investment by doing the simple labor ourselves. Please like, dislike, comment and subscribe. Thanks for watching our crappy drywall/sheetrock hanging video, "Putting up the wall".
