i'm about to hang my first ever sheet of drywall, in my garage
conversion, and have a question about cutting out around the windows.
for reference see:
if i hang the drywall first, then put a hole in the window opening and
cut around the edges, i'll get a window cutout, but is it the one i
want? i.e., there are a couple of 2x4's around the window and i think
maybe i want to be at the inner edge of the outer one, right?
actually, i have no clue. but if it's not the inner most one, then how
do i cut the opening for an outer one?
i'm not doing anything fancy here. i just want to cut out the window
and finish it in the simplest manner possible. so, how do i do that?
lastly, i plan on hanging the drywall vertically, instead of
horizontally, because it'll make doing the door easier, i think. (see:
www.linter.org/pictures/door.jpg) is there any real good reason to do
it the "official" way?
