How to Install Drywall in a Log Home

    • 1). Measure the height of your log home's walls with a tape measure.

    • 2). Put on eye protection and lay furring strips on a table or workbench. Cut the furring strips to the right length using a circular saw.

    • 3). Fasten the cut-to-size furring strips to the log wall with a nail gun and nails, spacing them about 18 inches apart.

    • 4). Fasten drywall sheets to the furring strips on the log wall using a screw gun and drywall screws. Cut any drywall panels needed to cover the wall.

    • 5). Adhere drywall tape over the joints where the drywall panels meet, then apply a coat of joint compound over the tape with a drywall knife and let dry.

    • 6). Attach medium-grit sandpaper to a sander and sand the joint compound smooth and flush with the drywall panels. Wipe the dust off the drywall sheets with tack cloths thereafter.

    • 7). Pour an interior paint with a color of your choosing into a paint tray and apply the paint to the drywall with a roller to finish the job.
