Corner Stud Shimming


1/2" drywall cant get tucked into corner completely

Hello, Found corner stud not aligned with others. was out about 1/2". I am installing stud shims. Now, when I replace the drywall it wont be able to be tucked in with mating existing corner wall. I dont want to cut other wall to make room, because it probably wont look good after finishing, since corners wont match. Notice that this may look good after finishing by just butting the drywalls up like I have in photo. This wall will have tile to 1/3 up the wall. Has anyone done this before? would there be any negative consequences if I do this? Thx!!

I would duplicate what was there before piece was removed. What is the thickness of drywall removed? How is the remaining drywall above cut in photo attached to stud? If you don't have a table saw to cut a shim to needed thickness, try improvising using some wooden yardsticks or lattice panel strips.

I had 1/2" drywall there before I pulled drywall out. I had about 1/2" difference between this stud and the rest of exposed studs to the left. I left the rest of the wall board in place above, because I figure there wont be any Tile installed above this point and hopefully I can make transition look acceptable. Tile will end a few inches or more below where my photo was taken. I just installed a test piece of shimming that is there. A total of 1/2" for shim, makes it just about even with rest of studs. This is why new drywall would lay at location as seen in photo, and not all the way inside against other walls stud. Just want to get some opinions for this, or is this just plain idiotic? Im a senior, and dont want to pull out anymore sidewall than necessary. I tried to hire contractors around here, but would need to wait till December. I figured I will do this bathroom remodel as long as I can until, I hit a dead end!!!

It doesn't need to get tucked behind.
