No matter how much stucco you plan to bury that in - drywall outdoors CANNOT be a good idea! Name:  no.gif

No...it isn't supposed to be dry wall. It is supposed to be cement board. Cement board is
okay. With metal studs it would be a good way to house an oven.

I agree though, the photo sure looks like sheetrock (and might be for his demo just because it is cheaper!)

Scared me too!

Thanks!

Looks like HardiBacker board to me. Tends to have a lighter color than many of the other cement backer boards. As for the install, I mortar over the screws just like installing drywall - appears that this guy does the same.

In clicking on the link, among the items they offer for sale are HardiBacker screws, so I'm guessing it must be Hardi.
