How do you drywall a window?
- Measure the length and width of the bottom of the window.
- Cut a piece of drywall to the correct size using a utility knife or a drywall saw.
- Lay the drywall in place along the wood that frames the bottom of the window.
- Place a T-square against the edge of the drywall, where it overlaps the wall below.
Likewise, how do you drywall around a window?
- Hang all of the whole sheets of drywall on the wall, starting on one end and working your way in toward the window, on each side.
- Install drywall by holding it in place on the wall and inserting screws through it and into the studs using a cordless drill and 1 1/2-inch drywall screws.
Beside above, do you install Windows before drywall? In some cases, it's nice to wait until all the drywall dust is gone before installing new doors and windows, or they can get awful dirty if you don't protect them with poly. The door and window would get installed first - but not the interior trim. The trim goes on after the drywall is finished.
Simply so, can you drywall over a window?

How do you plasterboard around a window?
