Special order for me.
You could cut 12'ers in half.

I'll admit I almost said planner before you. Then I re read and was trying to figure out how you would get a 1/2 4x6. Then I noticed it was in the drywall section.

You can order drywall any length you want. (I think max is 20') We just did a large office space and we ordered the rock 8' 3-1/2" for 8'-4" ceilings. But that was 2000 boards. However the cost to order 6' ers wouldn't be worth the extra expense, cuting a 12 in half would be much cheaper.

I have to ask, what on earth do you need 4x6's for?

My best guess would be, that is the biggest size drywall that will fit in the elevator.

SheetRock square and knife. Unless its a lot of sheets, waste is negligible. Can save the drops for patches.

That is when you have to pay an elevator guy to open up to open up the top of the elevator to get your board up. 4x6 on 9' walls lmfao. I would love to see the bid on the finishing when they see all the joints they have to bust out

Nice.

Woukd be better if it said, I plane drywall. Be almost as good as the sig line running around that says "I do framing and cornish for 2.25. Thats in Texas", or something to that effect. I dont remember whos it is. It still cracks me up though.

Not every building has a freight elevator. Some buildings only have 1 elevator like this particular building im working in. We could walk 4x8 sheets up 6 stories or roll 4x6 into the elevator. We would need 125 Sheets of 4x8 up there.
