Drywall attic air vent baffles?

Seth Holmen | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on

Any reason not to use extra drywall for attic air vent baffles? It would be installed similarly to rigid insulation or plywood baffles. Sister a 2×2 along the rafter and screw drywall in place. I would eventually insulate under the drywall baffle. Just thinking if there was a way to avoid the landfill with all of the extra scrap.

    I can't think of a good reason why your idea won't work.
