How do I drywall over this?


This is a sewer pipe fitting that I notched the drywall for. There isn't anything behind the drywall in the corner so it's a weak joint made worse by my notch. I'd like to just add a angled piece of drywall to patch this. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Little late now, studs should have been built out so the rock would clear the pipe.
There is no great looking way to cover that up.

Who ever installed the drywall originally around the sewer pipe just boxed it out. See photo. This made the usable storage space along this wall pretty useless. I wanted the box gone so the wall would be continuous.

Make a couple of 2x4 blocks with angle cuts. Then drywall over. Here's a crappy picture to give you an idea of what it looks like after drywall.

at this point you only have two choices, box it out, or fur the wall out to clear the pipe, just an idea, build a soffit all the way across and put some lights in it so that you don't have just a small box in the middle of the wall, depends on how fancy and how much you want to spend
