Buckminster Green LLC added this to Raw Materials Revealed: Drywall Basics
Drywall SizesMost drywall or Sheetrock you see is either 1/2 inch or 5/8 inch thick. What size to use depends on a variety of factors, including durability, location and fire safety. The width of drywall sheets is either 48 or 54 inches. The reason for the two width sizes is that when installed horizontally, two sheets will equal either 8 or 9 feet — common ceiling heights in residential construction. The sheet lengths vary from 8 to 16 feet. For the do-it-yourselfer, a 4- by 8-foot sheet will be difficult enough to maneuver. And don't forget that you'll need to cut holes for every outlet and light fixture box and get those all to line up, too. Professionals generally use the longer sheets, like the one shown in this picture, because it reduces the time spent on taping joints.
