The drywall seam has formed a hairline crack and has been fixed 4 or 5 times now. It is right at a large opening on a load bearing wall. I laid some plywood in the attic to prevent the joists from moving in case they were and installed metal bracketing before I added blown in insulation, and the wall is directly over the steel beam in the basement. It's a ~6 foot span with a double 2x8 and plywood header, with about 3 studs on each end (Jack/King). I don't know what to do anymore other than tear it all open again, or to just laminate the whole wall with another layer of plywood. What options do I have?
