Drywalling around a double vent pipe


So I need a little help. I've attached a couple pictures of the vent and was hoping for advice on how you guys would tackle this. I have an idea, but want to make sure I'm on the right path. Also, I'm doing blown in insulation, and although I know that's a different forum I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone. I'm in western colorado, thanks.

OK so what's the question. How to sheetrock around it?
Back up and take another picture so we can see what's on the left side.

Yes, how would you? Do I add a collar around? I'm worried about heat. I tried to find the answer regarding distance the drywall needs to be from the pipe. I am thinking 1/4 to 1/2 in, but am not 100 pct sure.

That's single wall smoke pipe. No combustibles (wood, Sheetrock, etc) within at least an inch if i remember right. I'd leave it open for access though. Or install metal ceiling around it. But no metal touching it.

GJ! My hometown!

Why do you want to finish around it? Why not just frame a couple walls with a door for access and leave it as is?

I've been selling steel buildings and structural steel for about 11 years now. What about you?
