Sheetrock hight and square


Posted one year ago

We are remodeling our 1934 Craftsman home. The sheetrockers put  Water resistant sheetrock all the way from the new subfloor to the 9 foot ceiling.  One wall is just Sheetrock ant perpendicular wall was laid over lathe and plaster. Questions...

Should I cut the sheet rock back to the studs on the new wall a quarter inch above my Onyx floor pan?  How deep do I cut the wall that is lathe and plaster covered by sheet rock?

Thanks for your help… Glenn

Do you already have the Onyx shower pan? If so - how wide is it from tile flange to tile flange? 

If you have not already ordered your shower pan - what width do you have from existing sheetrock to sheetrock? 

I am assuming they installed 1/2" sheetrock......
