Don't do this for a number of reasons: Assuming your ceilings are not an even 8
ft up it may seem that this would be true as u will have to rip some of the rock
to fit the ceiling height. HOWEVER, if you cut the rock the way u describe you
will have to clean up the cut at each stud to ensure a tight butt joint. that
joint will, BTW. be a tapered edge (new sheetrock) to a non tapered edge (the
old sheetrock) also you may cut the drywall at or above the nail or screw,
meaing the sheetrock has no attachment near the joint Also unless the wall MAY
have sections of rock running vertically. etc etc etc Cut it to the ceiling
i rake repair work like this right to the lid (ceiling)
