Difficult drywall corner


Looking at framing support for the drywall I have an inside corner where I can not get framing to screw into behind the drywall. See attached photo, I'm talking about the interior wall. The plumbing vent pipe prevention talking me from getting a 2x2 in.

Could I attached a metal stud perhaps?

By the way the bottom four feet is going to be tiled so I'm using CBU for that part

Apologies that my phone decided to turn my pictures sideways again

Re: Difficult drywall corner


Corrected photo. Run your sheetrock from right to left over the pipe and into the stud behind the pipe. Add a stud against the sheetrock and bring the left to right wall to the corner. You'll have to notch the top and bottom of the right to left piece to fit past the plates.

Re: Difficult drywall corner


Great idea, thanks!

Next one is the ceiling at the top of the same wall. Problem is if I put something on top, shooting a nail or screw from below will drive it up, and there isn't room from above for a air nailer or drill except maybe a right angle drill I don't have. Any better ideas?

Ha! Tricked my phone into orienting the photo right this time!

Re: Difficult drywall corner


Lay a 2x8 across the top of the plate and fasten it down. It will give you a nailing platform for both sides should you need it. Notch where the wires won't pinch.

Re: Difficult drywall corner


Lay a 2X6 up there, allowing it to extend over the 2X4. Drill a bunch of holes through the lower top plate. Screw through the upper top pate into the 2x6. You will probably have to pull down that nailer that's up there against the joist. That will allow you to nail the 2x6 to the joist also

You are going to have the same problem on the other side of that interior wall. I would take a different approach than Larry.

I would nail up 2x4 onto the last stud in the exterior wall. Then then put a stud in the interior wall just in front of the pipe. You are going to need it when you in close the other side of the wall.

Re: Difficult drywall corner


I don't have this problem on the other side. The joist is close, about a 1/4" gap

I was going to say I don't think I have long enough screws because I only have 3 inch and I was hoping to work with what I've got on hand but if you're suggesting I drill up to create a clearance hole to reduce the distance the screw has to reach I get it now and I'll try that
