I am re-finishing my attic which has a cathedral ceiling. The attic
ceiling used to have wood panelling applied over 1x3 strapping. I took
down the panelling and want to apply 1/2" drywall it its place. The
ceiling rafters are really crooked (as much as 1 inch difference from
one rafter to the next), so I *think*
I need to use *some sort of
A) Should I leave the 1x3 strapping and shim the strapping level to
prepare for the 1/2" drywall? (The strapping is not shimmed at all
right now). I suspect this would take a-lot of work, and I am not sure
how to do it.
B) Or should I take down the 1x3 strapping, and apply 2x2 strapping in
its place. The 2x2 strapping would simply be 2x4's ripped in half. I
suspect this method would be much easier as the 2x2's will be much
C) In either case, should I screw or nail up the strapping? Thanks!!!
