Could Use A Scend Opinion

Can anyone tell me how much movement there would be in a roof at a 45 degree angle.
I’m remodeling a loft and I’ve added some walls that run parallel to the trusses. My concern is that if there is movement, the tape will peal out where the new drywall on the walls meats the old drywall on the ceiling. Normally I leave my screws some distance from any interior wall to prevent this but this time it wasn’t an option since the ceiling was already there.

Looks a lot like what I did in my
attic 30 years ago, no cracks so far.
Of course it also depends on how
stiff the floor is.
That's where the pumping would
come from.


Put your location in your profile!

As long as the framing wood is dry and the house is a couple years old there should be no problem. I do notice a door close to the corner. To play it safe I would run a bead of tite bond heavy duty construction adhesive down the angle and butt the wall up to it. This should lock the ceiling to the wall and solve any separation problems.
