finishing drywall and masonry

Hello All,

I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions about a problem I am having.
I am finishing my basement I have drywall up on all four walls.
My problem is the wall coming down the stairs I wanna just let it masonry.
I will have on corner that is drywall on one side and masonry on the other.
How do I finish this corner?
Is their a special corner bead I can use?
I plan on painting the walls the same color.

Thanks Jake

Not sure how you can have four walls finished with drywall and and still have an exposed wall?

It's called and end cap.

Still will have to use some paintable caulking at the seam because a masonry wall is almost never flat.

And you going to need two totaly differant paints to do the two differant walls.

How did you "attach" the drywall you have now?
