I recently finished most of the basement, making a bedroom and bathroom in the process. This leaves a section of the basement unfinished which consists of a laundry room and storage area. The laundry room has the utilities like furnace and hot water heater. The storage area has big wooden shelves and a mini work shop.
So now in the unfinished section, one of the framed walls doesn't have drywall on the one side and the ceiling joists also don't have drywall or anything covering them. All wires are ran through the middle of the joists / studs per NEC requirements. The big question that I haven't found an answer to, do I need to drywall either the ceiling joists or wall?
