I started my drywall project (https://permies.com/t/152614/Drywall-ceiling-completely-level
) and in one room I started off the wrong way.
Turns out that the walls are (of course) not exactly square and now I have a gap in between two sheets. They touch at the wall side and the gap grows to just under half an inch at the other side.
Using my laser level I put a pencil line where it would be 100% straight and aligned, lengthwise.
If I keep going like this, all my sheets will be off. Especially because I have to stagger them. What’s the best approach?
So far I only have these two sheets up and I'm thinking to either:
1. Cut off a 0-3/8” strip with my Dremel oscillating tool and drywall blade, I can make pretty straight cuts with it. That way I can get the next sheets aligned way better. The gap between the butt joints will still be there and need to be fixed by the drywall finisher.
2. Replace the last full 8x4 sheet with a new one or re-attach the current one. The butt joints will be better, but new gaps will arise on the wall side. This will be hopefully covered up by the wall sheets.
3. Basically start over and replace or re-attach both sheets. Not sure if I can re-use the sheets or cause a lot of work for the drywall finisher.
