I'm planning to drywall a garage in my house. The garage has floor joists above that are 12" OC. The joists connect to beams but are not even with the bottom of the beam (the offset varies between about 1/4" to 1/2") - see picture.
This will be my first time doing drywall. What's the best way to get an even ceiling? should I put furring strips perpendicular to the joists? Along the joists?
Alternatively, what are other (maybe easier) options for dealing with the beams? Wrap them in drywall? Leave them exposed somehow?
Thanks in advance for any tips!
