Installing drywall on the ceiling or the wall can be done by most do-it-yourselfers using ½" or 5/8" drywall panels. It requires minimum tools. For installing panels on the ceiling, it is easier with two people with bracing made from two crossed studs. However, it is possible for one person to do it by renting a drywall jack.
Before proceeding with the installation of the drywall panels, be sure to provide wiring for electrical outlets and switches and make sure all plumbing fixtures are in place.
The wall is framed with 2" thick (and either 4" or 6" deep) wood studs placed every 16" or 24" centre to centre.
