Can do crown mouldings and similar stuff yourself the same way. (nail stuck in wall to catch and hold the end that is furthest from you)

Good idea. When I have hung it in the past I actually used my head to push it up against the ceiling and leveraged it in. This idea is much better.

Put a 2x4 cross piece on top of the "kickstand" to make a Tee. More stable/spreads the load/eliminates bowing.

In any space with electrical, or other potential ignitions source, use drywall not tinder (OSB/plywood) for walls and ceiling.

Make a jig with a scrap piece of plywood and screw it to a scrap 2x4 so you have a 1/2 inch extra gap. Screw the jig to the 1st piece of plywood at the edge. This is your new nail trick that you used along the wall. Only downside is you get a couple extra holes in your plywood once you remove it but you can just fill them with an extra screw.

Sometimes it is easier just doing the work by yourself than trying to find a helper.

I have a Rockwell JawHorse that I sometimes clamp a 2x4 in to serve as an extra hand.

I like working alone at times as I can work at my own pace.

DRYWALL LIFT.
rent one at Home Depot

saves a BUnCH of hard work alone problems.

I actually bought one because I had so much ceiling remod I was going to do but I have used it for other projects where I needed to work overhead and I was alone.

Not a bad idea, my shed is in rough terrain, not sure how heavy the lift is but may have been hard to get to location
Thanks for the tip though

Guess I am just hard headed. Normally just balance the drywall or plywood on my head, climb the ladder and hold in place while drilling a few screws in. Sometimes a little painful, and feel sore afterwards, but when all of the sheets are up, is worth it.

Maybe I should learn to work smarter, not harder.

It weighs 100 pounds, you can carry it to your shed.
