5/8 of an inch is recommended. You may be able to get away with 1/2 inch if you don't really care, but i would check with the building inspector first

You can either measure up from the floor or the piece of drywall you just hang and then measure over from the wall or the piece of drywall you just hang or you can put the drywall in place and I ball behind it and Mark with a pencil and then cut it out with a dremel tool and you should be good from there. You might want to use a keyhole saw or a roto zip and a Rotozip is the best way to do it but it takes a little practice in order to control it

The stud finders are not expensive but you can sometimes use a magnet to find the nails. Also you might try shining a flashlight across the wall. The putty put over the nails will sometimes show up. Last resort is to tap on the wall and try and hear the areas that have support under them.

Sometimes you can wrap a piece of thin plastic or paper around the stem and shove it back in and will hold it in place,- other wise there is a spring steel clip that probable wore out and would need to be replace but it wont be fun

Just saw your question but no answer. Sorry about the repair on the glass tape. Crack are pretty common with mesh tape, especially if the mesh was covered with premix all purpose compound. Mesh tape should be covered with setting type compounds. More info can be found on the tapebuddy.net how-to manual. They cover the reasons for the different compounds.

just go to any hardware store and buy any drywall mesh tape on that width (2" - 50mm) and approximately same length (50yds to 60yds), virtually all of them have same internal diameter, therefore you should not have any problem with putting it into the dispenser.

do not bother with brandname! generic tape work as well and is half the price! tapeis glued only to tack to the wall, then mud is holding it.

2 or 3 days, plus or minus depending on how fast the mud dries.

Get you some heavy duty liquid nail or similar adhesive, put it in strings/loops, wait a bit, put rock on, hold a bit done

Drywall sheets are 4 feet wide. Thus, each foot of a drywall sheet contains 4 square feet. Divide 10,000 by 4 = 2500 linear feet of drywall sheets. Add 5 to 10% for wastage.
