Point well taken, however, this is like a puzzle
to me, and I enjoy piecing this puzzle together.
You say co-effecience of expansion & contraction
is the reason that two materials (your example being
brick & wood) can not be put next to or on top of
either other. So, what's the formula? I under-
stand your theory, yet brick next to wood can be and is
successfully done. If the plastered area was already
dry and then a wood "edging" (help me here with the
proper terminology!) was added, and finally the
drywall applied "inside" the wood "edging" wouldn't
that solve the co-effecience of expansion & contrac-
tion factor? By eliminating the plaster actually
having to be connected to the drywall? (I could
draw this idea a lot better than try to describe it
with words!) And, of course, this will (hopefully)
be a DIY...but not for a few months. - ASM
