When we arrived a couple of days ago, Bruce had completed gib lining on the walls and ceiling. Now it really feels like a room.
The blue sheets of gib board are the special high performance GIB Braceline product, required for structural strength. This has to be fixed with many more screws than are used with normal gib board.
The lining work had to be completed before the kitchen arrives, which is tomorrow (Friday). The lining had to be inspected before it could be plastered. We had wanted to do the plastering before the kitchen was installed, and ideally I’d have applied the paint.
But the kitchen install date has been brought forward by the company and it will have to be installed against bare, unplastered Gib. There was a chance we could have finished the kitchen end of the walls before Friday , but the inspector could not come until 3pm today, even though Bruce put his request in on Tuesday morning.
