sheetrock and plaster question
I have some guys Sheetrocking my house right now, i noticed in one section they didn't end the 8' board on a stud, it was about 9" past a stud. They put a 3"x4" piece of strapping behind it and seemed it to the next piece.
Just a broad question, is there ever a time where you would extend the end of the sheetrock and connect it to the next piece as listed above? I'm trying to see if i am flipping out for a good reason. Thanks
Ill take some pics tonight and post them
