I am thinking about removing the soffits to above our kitchen cabinets. What is the preferred way to make the cuts on the drywall at the ceiling and at the wall? One angle of the wall is hidden by the back of the cupboards at the preset. The new cupboards will cover that section when replaced by taller units. My gut instinct says take a sharp exacto blade and score the drywall at the corner where the ceiling meets the soffit. However, I am having repairs done by a drywaller when all is taken down. Should I contact my drywaller first and have them come out to look at it? I really want to get some of the work done sooenr as later. This kitchen redo is taking it toll on my knees!
