    THe board is off the floor because the ceiling is more than 2.4m high, not such a bad thing especially on ground floor and wet rooms because it stops water migration. As for the rest .......Hmmmmmm rather you than me.

    indeed but if you paid someone good money to come in and board out your house and they didnt fill that 2-3" gap at the bottom (or even top as it was getting coving) stuff that man blowing a howler from the solum up through that gap from behind your skirtings? ive seen programs in canada and america where they actually silicone the bottoms of the sheets to the flooring to stop drafts then they also sealed the bottom of the skirtings to the chipwood flooring kinda makes sense but boarding in the uk or scotland is just a mess anyway i think its actually become an apprentiship? or a big course anyway?

    well wetrooms gets sealed with a rubbery membrane anyway to prevent water getting through so yano? i dont really see wet rooms being done with plasterboard its usually the heavy cement boaring with the membrane on top lol

    then dont pay them till your happy

    TBH Scotty I really dont know where your coming from, If you put skirtng on thats just the same as boarding down to the floor and if you leave a gap at the top which is later coved thats the same thing again. If you particulary didnt want gaps top or bottom then you should have said before hand and used 2.7 board, Im not condoning the rest of the work it looks shoddy but gaps top and bottom to me dont make a difference.

    2.7 board? WHATS THAT LOL? never seen anything in my life other than 2400 x 1200 id understand leaving like a 5-10mm gap between the boaring and the floor incase of shrinkage in the timber and what not but not almost 3" lol just a bit job and knock or half assed job hmm no pride in their work

    I agree 3" is a bit big and hard to fix skirting too, It didnt look that much from the pictures. Any way did you get over it.

    well it was a relatives house and it was there relative who boarded it i think it was taking the piss a bit. but some people just dont give a shit and some of us care a bit too much?

    say you went to board your grannys or cousins house would u leave that? and on the other hand if it was another relative who boarded it and you had to tape it? how would you look at it? lol

    External obtuse angle is a hard one to get right I all ways think but still who ever should have seen that before it got to paint stage.

    would be surprised if taper or painter left it like that,typical of the shit flex tape we get now,you can put it on and it looks fine for a while then some of it blows.

    Nope. On closer inspection it looked like very thin cheap crap though.

    Good luck with that one. Maybe try trim tex magic corner or the ridgid adjustable inside offset bead.
    Looks like some magic will be required!!

    Surprisingly not, DMC! It was a small attic conversion in Hamilton.
