wall A old wall ________________ edge of frame new wall ________________| | | Wall B |
I recently floated a new wall over wall A which brought out the wall by about 3 1/2 inches. I am now about to put a second layer of drywall over wall B. Normally, you'd just screw the edge of the drywall into the frame of wall B, but, because wall A has come out further from the frame, I can't reach the edge of the frame so I can screw in the new drywall on wall B.
My first guess is to use a very long screw and drive it in diagonally so that it goes into the edge of the frame. However, do they make 4-5" drywall screws? I can't use adhesive on the drywall because I am using Green Glue between the layers. Green Glue is not so much an adhesive as is it a soundproofing compound. I've already installed the second layer and am just looking for a way to screw in the edge.
