There is a easier way....

I just finished my basement, and I took out a window.

IF you have a window big enough, Take out the glass, and the frame can be cut out usually with a knife(if it is siliconed in)

I then built a skid to put the drywall on( just a slide with 2x4's). and had 3 guys helping me
2 up top, and 2 down low. Slide the rock in to the lower guys on the skid you made Voila. Done.

I loaded in 100 sheets this way in about 1hour, including window removal, and install.

Take your time, and I reccomend taking the glass out of the frame, before you cutthe frame out.....not to tough to do.

Lengthwise through the first door and down to the landing. At the landing raise it up until it gets around the corner.

That method will get you pretty close, if it still hangs up, see where you can cut out part of the wall to get them the rest of the way around the corner. Probably, really low headroom is compounding the problem.

Did the snap the back thing of course horizontal installed the bottom run 1rst with a good liine down to 48 1/4 cut the bottom pieces to size before snapping and I put a thin line of mud on the back of the cut(?)
use alot of screws. still looks good and not as humpy as trying to tape a cut vs. taper edge.
