292 - Gibstopping

The grey board is the standard Gibboard and the blue board is known as 'BraceLine' for extra strengthening.
From the bedroom looking towards the hallway and wardrobe - this room has been gibstopped.
The stilts, worn by Lyle the plasterer to do the ceilings, are taking a break.

Lyle the plasterer started late last week and he's working with a venegence! I visted onsite on Friday and the gibstopping was well underway. It is exciting to see all the rooms fully formed now and I had the natural reaction thinking it was all looking rather small! This is usually the case when it has all been open framing for weeks then all of a sudden it is closed in.
I went to check on the kitchen and bathroom joinery today - a few tweaks are needed to be made and it will be delivered onsite on Monday next week for installation.
