    Man your always thinking. Cool way of doing it. Did you notice the hits on
    this? I’m proud of ya lol

    I so enjoy when people are creative and think outside the box! I wish I had
    known about this trick a few years back when I had to install 5/8 drywall
    on a ceiling. My stepson and I did the “Atlas” thing: one holds the drywall
    up while the other screwed it on!

    Bob, you make that look too easy and you’ll forgive me for pointing out
    that you’re no Arnold Swartzeneggar. 😉
    Are you using a thin board! It looks like a 9mm plasterboard/sheetrock when
    ‘they say’ you should use 12mm on ceilings.
    Apologies in advance if you do use a home gym!

    Bob- Thanks so much for your idea. I just put up a 1000 feet of 4×8 deck
    ceiling using LP Smartsiding. I couldn’t use your bar roller method because
    I had stucco on the edges of the ceiling so I used a ladder for my “roller”
    and I attached the cargo jack to a board that spanned two ladder rungs. It
    worked perfectly as I used the paint sticks to brace each end. It was
    easier when my wife and son helped me but they weren’t available for much
    of the job so I was able to do most of it on my own. You are the man!

    Great idea, now I need to put the clothes back on the rod after I stole it
    to put two 4×12’s on ceiling. I only had a wooden rod, so I drilled a hole
    in both ends, secured some 1x1s to each end and then screwed that into the
    ceiling joists. Worked great.

    that looks a lot easier than we we do at work… i have to fram the walls
    and aheetrock them myself but before i put the sheetrock i have to put glue
    on the frame then put the sheetrock…instead of screws i got to nail them
    with sheetrock nails and a hammer

    Billybobt83 – this subject has been discussed a number of times in the
    comments. Seems like there are many different thoughts and opinions related
    to that. The video shows a way of doing it on your own and is not related
    to which goes first etc.
