Steel Studs

Couple of questions - do you drywall toward the open side of the stud or toward the closed side of the stud?

And, do you use 2 or 4 wafer screws per stud when framing?
Get 'er done!

Re: Steel Studs

Hang the open side first. Start your screws at the bottom and work your way up the stud. If you start in the middle, the stud will move on you.

4 wafer screws.
