Because we don’t intend to tape the corners of our ceiling, we will cut off the compressed edge of the drywall and put that edge against the wall.
With a "Rock Ripper," score a line across the drywall at 3" (Image 1).
Give the drywall a little pressure and snap the cut piece off (Image 2).
Hold the drywall up against the ceiling and drill into the ceiling joists.
Tape the seams with self-adhesive mesh tape.
All fields are required.
