How to handle the corners of a three sided fireplace - drywall-wise?


I am installing a three-sided fireplace in a framed-in column. Now getting ready to apply the drywall and wondering how to do the corners...

I will be putting tile around the fireplace opening - which is a square corner of metal. Above the opening is drywall - which I am wanting to have the corners bull-nosed (rounded). So, I have the fireplace square corner part of the way up - and rounded drywall corner the rest of the way.

Options to handle the square to rounded transision? Or just do the drywall corners square as well...?

thx!
Vince

This is actually a good question. Off-hand, my first guess would be to do the transition from square corner to bull-nose with a lot of plaster and some hand sanding (but I'm no drywall expert)...

Corners are available for this transition, check out http://www.vertri.com/drywall_corner_caps.html I doubt you will find them at the big stores, but your local drywall supply will carry them.
