I had a pipe leak in my bedroom, and the plumber had to cut two holes in the wall to find where the leak. I installed an access panel where the leaking pipes were found (you can watch that project here, and I repaired the drywall where the leak was not found.
The plumber did a great job cutting into the drywall. He cut out a big enough square so that there were two studs available to reattach the drywall piece back in place. If he had cut the drywall smaller, I would not have been able to attach the drywall to the studs.
Please watch the video to see how I used the original drywall piece to repair the hole in the wall.
