Oh, now that's a great idea.
How about buying wide drywall and going horizontal. THey make it for
situations like yours. If you're a vertical only man, buy longer
sheets. The stuff is not that expensive.
Buy either 54" wide drywall or 9' tall drywall. Both are available at
any good commercial drywall house. Probably cheaper than home despot.
The other choice I would make would be to run horizontal 4' top and
bottom with the filler at mid point. It will be easier to reach and the
joint can be covered by a 12" tape knife.
Keep the whole world singing. . .

Don't think this one has been brought up yet:
Hang normal 8' sheets of drywall from the top down, and fill in the gap at
the bottom with strips of 1/2" plywood. You can mud over the plywood, and
have a firm nailer all the way around the perimeter of the room for
