I am remodeling a mid 80’s prefabricated house. I am wanting to hang drywall on the ceiling. I have found that the roof trusses are only built out of 1 3/16 tall by 1 1/2 wide lumber. They are 16 in on center, and 14 ft long. Will that hold 1/2 in drywall? Or should I sister in some 2×4’s for added support.
Maintain the beauty of stain-grade siding with proper prep and a protective oil finish.
