Some worthwhile stuff/tips here for newbies...and old guys/gals

Remember the battle we had long ago on the requirement for fireproof sheetrock and door in the garage on Paul Ness' FHA deal?

Here's FHLMC's stuff from the guide:Be sure there is a fireproof wall, ceiling and door between an attached garage and the home. This should be 1/2-inch fire code drywall for the ceilings and walls or masonry and a solid core door.

Poke around and enjoy

Thanks Ben!

I'm not sure I want to be that educated though. :roll:

I really will enjoy this.

<span style='color:brown'>How long have they been making 1/2 " fire code drywall????? Type X drywall has always been 5/8"

and a solid core door may or may not be fire rated....you will find the fire rated label on hinge side of the door.......or are they accepting a door without an UL label?</span>

I didn't write it. Freddie did.
