imo with all the trips of the employee and yours you could of floated that entire wall it but that may also be because I have not seen what you are working with or how well the initial repair was done. 3-4 feet tall and in between a couple studs sounds like an easy fix but sometimes lighting is a bitch. What kind of lighting are you using in the hall?

Fvck it rip out the rest of the drywall to make it uniform.

It is just hard to hide those butt joints on patches sometimes. The wall is not big, so in hindsight I probably should have just floated it. This is the first time I have had to deal with real large holes in dry wall, just not something we see. If the bedroom door is closed or hallway lights are on, everything is good. We will figure it out.

Is it a repair issue or a flashing/texture issue? If it is a repair issue then just pull the repair out about a 10-14 inches past the tape line, pull in some good lighting to make sure you are not missing anything on the sand and be done. Either way I am sure you will figure it out.
