Hanging sheetrock in new stairway area

After the  staging is built, the new sheetrock in the ceiling and upper sections of the stairway are hung and the old sheetrock is patched. After the ceiling and upper sections are hung the lower sections are hung.

The sheetrock being used is a new lightweight sheetrock from USG.
