  • Help!-5/8 type X alternative

    I am adding a bedroom over a garage space that is 30'x24'. The H/O just decided that she wants the bedroom now and I just finished hanging 1/2" sheetrock on the ceiling(12' ceiling by the way). Is there any alternative to meet fire code besides tearing it all down and redoing it with 5/8?? Help!

    Another layer of 1/2" should do it, but I'd check w/ the inspector.

      Don't forget that the walls supporting the floor/ceiling must also be protected with 1/2" sheetrock.
