I’m unsure how to set up this wall for the drywallers. I don’t have much clearance from the door opening to the concrete. There is also a layer of reflective insulation directly on the concrete.

First thought is using powder actuated nailer to attach 3 x 1 strapping and just using adhesive to hold the drywall.

    Sounds good but I would also suggest topping off with some drywall screws.

    Is that reflective insulation merely a radiant barrier, or is it acting as a vapor barrier as well? What's on the other side of the concrete? Aug 8 at 23:39
  • i believe is acting as both a vapor and radiant barrier. but am unsure of the intent.
