I have a sheetrocked attic in which I would like to install a knee
wall. I am using steel studs. What is the proper procedure to
eliminate the triangular space about the top metal track? Normally I
would just attach the studs to the rafters but the drywall is in the
way and I would prefer not to disturb it.

Thank you for your time,
The trick, IMO, is after you get a good connection with your drywall to get
a nice finished edge with your joint compound. The angle is not 90deg. There
is a tool that will give you a nice radius edge. Called "the bat knife" on
this site. See
