Drywall stand-off?
 
How much, if any, is drywall supposed to be off the floor? Was wondering why I didn't know this...I've only had to do puzzle-piece repairs or high-elevated sheets thus far, lol. Thanks.

I keep the drywall off the floor a half inch on wood framing and 1 inch on concrete.
This helps with the settling of the home with the wood shrinkage, and mold issues on the concrete floors from wicking up water.
Have fun.:)
