Why 1/2" gypsum board on all walls and ceilings? 5/8" firecode costs less than a dollar a sheet more and they're already using it on the garage ceiling. Even if you don't have surrounding rooms, I...

$100 for 10 days of dog sitting.

OK, $321 for 5000 hours = 0.0642 per hour.

200 hours is 10% of a 2,000 hour bulb. Replacement bulb is what, $150? So she wasted maybe $15. Probably about as much as you spent on a hamburger during your vacation.

If it's a 12x20 room, that's 240 sq ft of ceiling... 8 sheets of drywall x $10 = only $80. You can add a base layer of OSB for another $80.

Similar size to my HT. I think 12' wide might be a bit much... also consider image height. How tall are your ceilings? 10' wide is nice.

Can you switch the door to swing into the storage area?
