    As part of an extension I'm converting a car port to a room, the old car port has another room above it.

    Would I plasterboard (insulated type for heat retention/sound proofing)) the ceiling before I do the walls?

    Do the recessed edges that take the joint tape/mesh run parallel to the ceiling joists or do I arrange it to minimize the amount of taped joints that won't have recessed edges?

    Thank y'all kindly

    Plasterboard ceilings first and across the joists.
