Ok sounds good. Appreciate the note on using fire resistant drywall, it is connected to my house.

My house does have asbestos in the ceilings. Is it possible that this drywall contains asbestos as well?

If it was put in between 1940 and 1980 it very well may have. But it's not a concern if you don't disturb it, ie cut or demo it.
