I'm finishing my basement, and made a mistake.
The wall in some portions was only framed in up to 84". I'm matching the height of my suspended ceiling to the bottom of a steel I-beam the crosses the whole basement at a height of - you guessed it - 85".
I've already insulated, drywalled, primed and painted.
I'm looking for a way to affix the angle to the drywall. It'll be 100ish inches long on the offending wall, bearing half the weight of four-ish half-tiles, so not terribly much. I'm wondering if drywall anchors should be stout enough.
I know the proper answer is to frame up behind the drywall, but I'm not gonna. There are reasons.
