Re: Spray Foam or Batts You can try this trick in doing your walls:
a) measure the height of the ceiling - let's assume 96"
b) measure the height of the baseboard you'll be installing. Let's assume 5"
c) Cut the drywall to 92" tall overall
d) install the drywall snug to the ceiling (you'll be 4" shy of the floor)
e) rip a sheet of 1/2" plywood into 4" wide strips
f) screw the plywood strips to the studs below the lower end of the drywall
g) attach the baseboard to the drywall (it will overlap the drywall)
Now if you ever want easy access to ALL stud cavities, just pop the baseboard off and unscrew the plywood.
