I’ve recently finished one half of the 21’ subfloor I’m building. I’m out of joists, so I’ll need to buy more before continuing. In the meantime, I figured I would go ahead and lay paneling where I could as the leveled joists over the concrete floor are making it increasingly more difficult to walk. I tacked down a few rows of insulation and already have the vapor barrier purchased and ready to go. As soon as I can get out to the store, I’ll be purchasing tongue and groove OSB subfloor to close up those open lengths. Once this floor is completely laid, I’ll be starting on the walls. I have one wall to construct completely and two walls to rework. The main rework job involves my tearing down a perfectly good wall to add insulation before repaneling with drywall. Any tips or tricks on drywall paneling? Is there a certain way I should take it down? What do I need to look for on an exterior wall when I get in there (before I button the hatches on it)?
