Default hanging drywall on ceiling

Hi,

I am remodeling my kitchen, finished with the plumbing, electrical and gas and insulation and am getting ready to hang the drywall on the ceiling. The dimensions of the ceiling are 12 x 17. Here is how the joists run:

and these are the full plans:

I am doing this completely by myself and will be renting a drywall jack. Now if I run 4 x 8 sheets across the joists starting with a full sheet on one end I end up with a foot wide area left over at the other end. What would be the best way to approach this job based on my ceiling dimensions?

thanks,

Mark

Hi,

Just realized something else. I still need to deal with the opening into the kitchen which adds another 4 - 5 inches into the mix. You can see it on the plans at the lower left side.
