How do you build a lift for a drywall ceiling?

Answer

Building a drywall lift yourself is usually more work than it is worth. The simplest method is to build two T's out of 2X4's with the top of the T measuring four feet and the vertical portion at least the height of the ceiling. Have two people lift the sheet with the T's and a third person attach the drywall.
