    I am moving into a new place with a drywalled basement. The ceiling is open. I want to stuff with insulation and then drywall. Caulk the screws and seams. Resilient channel and then drywall again...and then tape, mud, sand and prime/paint. The room is about 12 x 20. If I have a friend helping, how long should that take?

    Thanks.

    With those dimensions and just 4 corners I would say you could fly. Especially if you do not have any lights to cut around.

    2 people.....I'd say you could put it up in about 4-5 hours per layer...maybe faster. Dream dimensions for putting up drywall. If you have a lift you'll even go faster.

    Why the channel than another layer? Sound control? Just curious.
