In reply to Questions about building out an existing concrete wall by Lee on June 28th, 2001 03:48 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi", Lee, Simple, set out the wall at 2ft centres start
at the middle then work left tnen right.
But before you do that, run a lath 2x1 along the edge of
the ceiling and wall, do the same on the bottom.
a lath along the floor and wall, then do the same
again with another lath but about 2" above the first on
( the one on the floor)run some electical tubes 3/4"
should do it, ( this is for you later to run your cables
along the wall.
Now you fix new laths at 2'centres starting at the
centre, then work left and then right,till the end
or sides, you now should have the same space at both
ends,now run a lath down the corner's ( both corners )
now start screwing plasterboard ( starting from the
centre) I myself would fix a lath at every 12" ( 1ft )
How you want to finish the joints is up to you, some
people fill them with plaster, then paper the wall,
and thats all you have to do. toal work time ( 16 hours +/- )
Hey have fun out there.
