Knee wall

I am in the process of hanging drywall in an upstairs addition. I have most of the sloped ceiling already in place. When I hang the pieces on the knee walls, should I cut the top at an angle to match the sloped ceiling, or simply butt the end up against it with the finished edge along the ceiling?

Either way. If you just use the tapered edge, fill the gap and make your bed for your tape at the same time. The tapered edge also allows for a little less buildup in the corner. Less to feather out.

Seriously consider using 'Straight Flex' for those off angle corners when you get to taping that area---

It is nice and stiff and will yield a nicer joint than paper.
