I am over half way into a project that is very important to me. I am converting my attic into a living space; This is commun where I am from, it is a upper and lower two family (duplex). It has a wall (load bearing) running directly down the center of the house from front to back on both floors. Also this is where the main beam in the basement is. the house is only about 25ft. wide. My concern is when I have the drywall delivered will I be able to stack it lenght wise above the load bearing wall without any concern. This is a 105 year old house. The attic floor is already finished with existing tonge and grove and the joist are the old turn of the century 2"x6", which I would think with the wall down the center as support it should be good. Every one that I spoke with says it should be fine.My handy man friend whose helped a lot says he has stacked more on less. My carpenter said it shouldn't be an issue, as did the guy (who is a friend) that is hanging the drywall. Any advice would be nice.

Thank You.
