Joist support question
We are doing a kitchen remodel and hired a contractor to move a load bearing wall back 5 3/4 inches. Our contractor did not remove the drywall on the ceiling so the drywall is sandwiched between the floor joists and the doubled-up 2 x 4's that are running horizontally framing the new wall.
I would think that it is not a good idea to have this drywall sandwiched in there because drywall can compress. Do you think this is a problem?
