    Anyone know why we dont hang boards on their side like the Americans ect. is it that we drive on the wrong side of the road or something.

    No they drive on the wrong side, and they don't talk proper like wot we dus
    Don't know why we don't hang like they do, its got its advantages, and some disadvantages, but we don't make boards to the same lengths as they do
    I do it sometimes

    I read that they use 16' long boards. that would make a huge difference to the way we work. That explains all the board lifters that they sell. In all the years I have been in the trade ive only seen them used once or twice thats why?.

    Plus any butt joints, you could have 2 on each layer, at least with stand ups there's no butt joints

    I do commercial and there are plenty. Sometimes the fixers dont even use fixing plate on the butts so wobble wobble . Its all down to specification and lack of knowledge. Fixer excuses (no fixing plate) (takes to much time)(not enough money in the price for the hassle).

    Hey management guys get your act together do some reading on whats good practice. Try looking at BUTTBOARD. I have mentioned this stacks of times but nobody seems to give a f**k.

    The only times I have seen boards on their side is on the first layer of a jumbo stud 2 high. This is getting rarer now. Who listens to the taper anyway.

    Just another observation why are boards not staggered when there is a butt joint, full board,cut board full board. I have been told thats the way we always do it, it takes to long, we need to save plasterboard, thats what we have been told to do. TOTAL B.. S...

    I brick bond my boards if I Yankee them, the ones we've done lately is because they were timber framed and as usual the centres never worked anywhere near 1200 or 400 or 600, but it was being skimmed not taped
