Started removing the drywall to match the level of new sub-floor I'm going to build.
Ran into my first issue today, I was going to keep the drywall on the ceiling but turns out that I already have 2 layers of DW (no GG in between). Is this a code thing or somebody had some spare drywall to use?
Doesn't look like I have to remove the first layer since they both count as a single leaf but I wouldn't get the full benefit of DD DW.
I didn't make as much progress as I hoped during the holidays. But here is an update:
- Drywall is all gone, while removing the drywall on the ceiling I noticed that I have a small roof leak, that will have to be fixed
- Decided not keep the garage door on rails, instead I went with this approach:
Feels pretty solid. I'll caulk the seams on both sides of the door and will add foam insulation on the inside to act a vapor barrier.
Haven't made much progress since the last update. I'm planning on sealing the concrete floor this week, install 6mm vapor barrier and start working on framing over the garage door and building the subfloor.
I have a sound-proofing question and I hope somebody more knowledgeable than I'm can chime in and confirm that I'm on the right track.
Here is what I'm planning to-do.
I have some concerns about leaving 1/2 in. gap between the subfloor and the walls framing to allow the subfloor to expand and shrink. Should I do something about it or would it be sufficient to caulk the gap between DW and the subfloor with the acoustic caulk to prevent the sound leakage?
