To make recessed butt joints, put blocks between the studs or joists. The blocks are set back about 3/16 in. from the face of the framing, so when you screw the drywall to the blocks, the butt ends are drawn inward, creating a shallow recess that's as easy to finish as a tapered joint. I have used this procedure several times and it makes taping and mud work a breeze.
