My only regret from the Natty was not meeting any 11W's,  Would have loved to have been there last night too-

I build homes level, plumb and square.  Not every contractor/carpenter takes care or time to do that but with how cheap lasers and construction calculators have become there is no excuse. I don't build spec homes though, just custom work.

There should be sheet rock backing fastened to the top plate of non-bearing walls.  However, it may not be out far enough to fasten to. You can glue it up with a quality adhesive, but clamping it in position is difficult unless you have access to a telescoping jack like the "third hand" adjustable length models.  One trick you can use involves hot melt glue spaced every 16' or so to get the initial set, which will allow the other adhesive time to set up.  You'll need help though with long pieces as it's not forgiving if your off a little.

There are jigs and saw attachments for cutting crown .  They hold the molding at the proper angle.  The compound miter saw is the ticket for out of square corners, use scraps to find your adjustments from 45 degrees and there are jig saw attachments for coping that really speed it up. Crown is a pain in the arse but looks nice if installed right as I'm sure you know or you wouldn't be attempting it.  Good luck!
