So some of the walls are up and I finally got at tackling an outside corner in the room that was a challenge to decouple. I had to recess channels between studs on the south bar wall due to a door on the east pretty much butting right up to this wall's framing; there's about an inch between the wall studs and the back of the door hinges. On the other end of this wall is the in wall recessed AV rack I built and immediately next to it is a load bearing post, so in the top right corner of this wall I had no channel to attach drywall to and nowhere to recess a channel. So I had to get creative.
Luckily, I had 4 IB-3 brackets left over so I decided to mount these to the side of the post but backwards so that the rubber part of the L shaped bracket wrapped around the post and gave me 4 mounting points for some scrap 3/8 OSB I had left over from the screen backer box build. Because the post is flush with this wall framing, I had to use 3/8 OSB as the 1st layer as I couldn't fit the bracket then 5/8 OSB in front for first layer. Too shallow to fit the depth including the rubber mount. But, I was able to add some scrap drywall and GG to the back of the 3/8 OSB and around the rubber mount. On the left backside of the OSB panel, I added some nailers so that I could bridge it to the drywall butting up to the OSB to complete a flat first layer here. Problem solved.
