Cut the drywall to size for the space---cut out the hole or slot that will fit around the pipe---

then make a V shaped cut from the hole to the edge of the sheet---install the large part of the sheet--add some 1x4 backers to the V--screw in the V shaped patch.

Easy to tape--the V puts the tape out in the open with plenty of room for paper and mudding.
