What to use on shop walls & ceiling
My shop is 30 x 40. It's studded and insulated with faced fiberglass. The next step is to put something on the walls and ceiling and paint it white. I have been around and around with different thoughts. Pegboard, white pegboard, plywood, drywall, OSB, hardboard, MDF, you name it, I have thought about it. I have finally tentatively decided. LOL. My last thing before I finalize my decision is to run it by this forum. First, the ceiling is the underside of the roof. It's high, angled, and has collar ties I will need to work around. So, my thoughts for the ceiling are 1/4" plywood (Luann). It is $6.16 a sheet. I will need 30 sheets. It is light, easy to cut, easy to handle, cheap, and it won't have to hold anything but paint. My thoughts for the walls is 7/16" OSB. It is $4.97 a sheet. I will need 35 sheets. My 2 concerns with OSB are 1.) How well does it paint? I am not concerned about perfection, I only want to brighten the shop's lighting. and 2.) How well will it hold nails etc. if I want to hang something between studs? My thoughts are that if I have a problem hanging things, I will use a bracket of some kind instead of simply a nail. Also, I will put pegboard up, firred away from the walls for clearance, after I get the OSB up. So, go ahead you guys, beat me up, pat me on the back, make suggestions, whatever. Thanks.
