In most rooms under 16’x16’ the layout makes no difference at all because you can order 16’ board and go corner to corner.
So order longer sheets so I don't have to worry about breaking on layout and creating a butt joint at all. Only thing I'll have to do is cut to fit my wall. I underdig you.

This is my first time finishing interior and exterior walls after I've framed...hence my stupid question. Usually after I've framed for new construction I've sheathed and that was it...installed hardie or vinyl siding depending on the job size. Drywall was always hung and finished by someone else though.
