As I recall, first you gotta get it up and then you gotta screw it ;)

I'd come over to help, but I just finished fighting with a hot water heater [which still isn't working] and that five hour drive would just do me in completely.

sheetrocking is totally a piece o chocolate cake once you do it a couple of times. I have worked with SOOOOO much drywall over the years, thanks to my parents constantly wanting to redo everything. Short and sweet version.

1. have a stud frame on wall. Place a half inch piece of wood on the floor at the bottom of the stud. (for leaving gap at bottom. Put drywall against the wall long ways, smooth side out and dimpled up where you tape it. Top wall piece, dimple do down.

2. need to cut a certain size? figure out the size, draw a line with a straight edge on the smooth side. run razor knife along line to score through the one side, walk on other side, kneed the crease, trim other side.

3. tape and lots of mud to cover trial and error.

Or try seeing if home depot has classes. Total Piece O Flan
