I am going to be putting drywall up on my ceiling soon and I am not sure which is the best orientation\layout for the drywall.
The ceiling joists run horizontal to the following images. The section of the ceiling is approximately 33' by 11'.
Which of the following would be better? Option #1 has 12 butt joints while Option #2 only has 8.
Not sure if this matters but the ceiling joists do not match up with drywall lengths so I've added blocking at the appropriate spots for support.
Longer sheets are not an option.
