Of course! And then I could hang pegboard from a commercial track system! Everyone wins! (Oh, my aching wallet....)

I would get a couple quotes on the job from what would seem to be reliable home repair companies, mention you have been considering OSB or wallboard, they will likely advise you what meets local code. Ask questions, then armed with that info proceed with it yourself.

I wouldn't trust "reliable" home repair companies to knowing what meets code as the be all to end all. Too many of these companies offer warranties until you can't see their tail lights.

It's to easy to pick up the phone and call the building department and get the straight scoop.

I designed an art gallery a couple of years ago and used drywall over fire retardant plywood (needed to follow Assembly building codes). Allowed for hanging art anywhere and easy to repair after the show.

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.
