Exclamation remove openings and drywall????

I am painting a newly purchased office. It used to have a receptionist area with two open framed window areas with sliding glass panels. The owner wanted to remove the walls, but one is load bearing. Now they want to remove the two open framed areas and fill them in with drywall to be flush with the surrounding wall.

How do I remove them? Do I need to place braces through the openings? If so, how? If not how do I nail the drywall to bothe sides of each opening? I have done limited drywalling and told them I would look into doing it if I felt it was something I felt comfortable with.

you may have to cut the frame out,but you should have a header in the top and bottom and just cut and put 2x4 or what ever it has in there then put your drywall up.

If I understand your message correctly, you have an opening that currently has a sliding glass door in it, and you want to remove the door and fill it in with drywall? Is this correct?
