    Why OSB vs sheetrock?

    At least around here, sheetrock is less expensive per square foot than OSB.

    And sheetrock accepts paint a lot better than OSB does.

    It's also not flammable, like OSB is.

    Just a thought...

    sheetrock gets my vote!!!
    paint it bright white and its way brighter in there.
    osb is half the money and less work though
    just make sure you insulate good and use super 6 vapour barrier and redtape all plastic joints.

    Good! Glad it made ya laugh. It seems I have found my way into many siggys here at Nasty and it makes me feel at home and amongst friends.
    (thanks for due credit bro ;))

    You might prefer the durability of OSB for the interior walls but the Sheetrock would look cleaner. I think it goes without saying whichever way ya go you will want to insulate and use a good moisture barrier like leafs suggests.
    Painted white and it will be plenty bright.

    I also like the idea of with OSB it is easier to mount things to the wall and a little more durable than sheetrock. Plus I cant mud at all, dont have the patient...

    R-13 in the walls and going R-30 in the ceiling, the entire shop was housewrapped so I feel the moisture barrier is good.

    White on walls and ceilings with some other colors near floor to hide some of the dirt. Toying with the idea of doing a black white checkered flag thing on the exposed cinder block portion.

    I don't like muddin' either. I didn't even try to do a professional job - it's a garage. Covered all the screws and didn't bother taping at all. Gave the joints a once over lightly with no tape. After painting - if I noticed any gaps - that's what they make white caulk for...:bowtie:

    I did use FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) plywood (known as dairy board around here) for the first 4 feet. That way I can get the hose out and have at it when I need to without worrying about the sheetrock.

    In a picture it looks great. When you walk in - it looks fine. If you get close up, you can tell it's not perfect. I still think it looks better than painted OSB that will have even more noticeable joints.

    And at least in my area - sheetrock is cheaper than OSB (.5" sheetrock vs. .5" OSB). For the ceiling I did use 5/8" rock - which is more expensive though.

    Well finally got all the OSB up and painted the inside, 95 sheets of OSB. Moved in this weekend and it was amazing how much crap I had in the 2 car garage.
