Cover goes to the edge of the flange, no overhang. Supposedly box is supposed to go in before or after hung. If the box goes in after drywall hung, then how would they connect all the conduits?

What is the best way to patch around this box for clean and tight finish?

The box has roughly inch wide flanges on right and left side. No flanges on top and bottom.

Hell I'd either take metal studs, cut me some brackets, & shoot them to the block wall so I could fasten short pieces of stud to them, and sew in a few backers to the existing rock where I could-- or, just shoot some hat channel up, fasten 3 layers or so of 5/8's to that using long drywall screws & rock-to-rock screws; then I'd build fast set around the edges, tape it all, fill everything in with hotmud, & skim the wall with regular mud. That's my thoughts. I'm just a North Alabama Rockstar always figuring things out the fly.
