Re: How and what tools and supplies you would use?


I would remove all the loose material and square up the opening. Then I would shim / furr as necessary so that 1/2" drywall would flush to the existing surface. Fill any big voids with a Durobond style mud and then finish it with regular, sandable mud in multiple coats.
Gymschu, stick\shift and Marky82 like this.

#1, what caused all that damage?
That needs to be addressed first.
A 4" cast iron drain line running on an outside wall above a window!
What's holding up the roof?
No location in your profile so I'll guess an ice dam on the roof.
I would not waste my time trying to patch anything it all needs to come out and be replaced.

The photo is rotated. Either that or the screwdriver on the sill is performing a neat trick.

The pic is rotated. And why would I redo everything. It's how it was built. Is there a particular reason why you would pull it out??

No ice dam on the roof. New roof was just replaced with a new roof.

In my part of the world, any plumbing in the exterior wall is a no-no. Period.

Add some insulation and vapour barrier as possible then drywall as per above.

Re: How and what tools and supplies you would use?


By the looks of things, the house was built under a very old code or pre-dates any code. If there is no insulation in the rest of the wall, a bit in this spot isn't going to do much good. As mentioned, secure some furring or something to fasten a piece of drywall to. It looks like the original wall is plaster so you'll probably have to build up the patch.
