Hi all, We live in a manufactured home. The ceiling is made out of this odd, funky paneled looking stuff. We dry-walled over it and we were quite happy with the results. This was 7 years ago. Then a little while ago we had a leak in the roof and as a result had to relocate a couple of recessed lighting canns. Now we have 2 of holes that need to be repaired in the ceiling. The area surrounding where the cans were is cracked as well.
I want to just to a clean cut out of a wide section, perhaps 18" x 30" but I dont want to cut through both layers of ceiling material, I only want to cut through the drywall portion.
How can I cut through the drywall on the ceiling without cutting through the ceiling material above it? Can I use a circular saw?
The area is over our kitchen sink, a rectangle about 18 x 30
