off angle drywall hanging/finishing?


I am finishing my attic and am hanging the drywall. I have a flat ceiling, the roof joists as part of the ceiling that are on an angle and then the walls. So the walls go up 48" and then the joists on about a 45 degree angle and then the ceiling. Hopefully that makes sense! What is the best way to hang the drywall so you get a straight line at the angles. Also what is the best tape to use when finishing this and is there any special procedure when finishing it. Thanks for your help

When hanging the rock, I'd say just butt the pieces together and don't try to cut some fancy bevel. Use paper tape at the seam, and mud it conventionally. Bed both sides of the tape in mud, and let it dry. When finishing the joint, just do one side per day. Wall, then ceiling, etc.

You may want to use a composite tape such as this to keep the angle a little straighter:
