TOPIC: Condo firewall in attic

Condo firewall in attic 6 years 8 months ago #51252

I know that a condo/townhouse requires a 5/8" drywall 1.5 hour firewall in the attic in California. Question: does it require the framing to be drywalled on each side? Can framing be exposed on one side with the drywall on the other?

This illustration states finishing on both sides. Hope this helps.

I believe the requirement is for both sides of both walls. be 5/8 Type X.
The framers have to rock the inside of the "sandwich" when they set the trusses.
