comment Jigsaw cuts crooked when trying to rip enginered wood
Hire a table saw from a local tool hire firm. You will not regret the quality of finish it gives on the flooring panels.

comment When drywalling a room, should I do the ceiling before the walls?
Just for completion, I did both blocking and ceilings first. I also used many, many screws. My plasterer commented that he had never seen so many screws used, but did not answer when I asked him if that was a good or bad thing. :) Not really THAT many, but definitely more than normal.

comment Should I reinforce the cupboard back before mounting it to the wall?
@wallyk - Happy with some of your grammatical modifications, but changing timber to lumber assumes this is a US only site and actually I find those edits offensive.

comment When drywalling a room, should I do the ceiling before the walls?
At the time I asked the questions I didn't have the man-power... or tools to attempt the ceiling, but wanted to get started on boarding the room. I asked the question to see if I would have any issues if I started on the walls first, something I could do. The responses though convinced me to get on to something else and wait. :)

Marked as answer due to the level of detail showing both sides with potential issues outlined. The diagrams also help to show the potential issues.

Awesome answer Tester101. I do have blocking so I would be fine with support. But I do like the idea of butting the wall sheets up to the ceilings.
