I'm no drywall expert, so maybe there's a reason not to do this......
I'm currently tearing my kitchen down to studs for a remodel, and I see
the drywall was hung "conventionally", that is, each section has two
sheets hung horizontally with a horizontal seam 4 feet up from the
floor. Right between the upper and lower cabinets.
Why would someone (me??) not hang a full sheet across the middle, with
a half sheet above and another half below it. I realize that's twice
as many seams to tape, but my thinking is who cares, you'll never see
those joints behind the cabinets. Wouldn't have to take nearly as much
care to make them invisible.
Anone care to talk me out of this?? Thanks!!
