I have searched on this and dont see a huge amount so thought Id ask!
.. I am just about at slabbing stage on my build and am still weighing up if I should go and get in the plasterers (at 4k) to skim, or if I should stab at tape/joint myself ... anyone here done it? experience/comments?
... couple of q's
* Is there much of a differance between the finish on both really?
* I notice on the slabs that there is two sides, one side (lighter) has slight depressions at the edge, I assume this is the side to have out if T&J?
* Either way I intend hanging the slabs myself (have the time and it will save a few K) ... anyone know where I can rent a slab lift (Carlow/Wicklow/Dublin)? (thing that you lay the slab on and it hoists to ceiling ... heres one kind: http://cgi.ebay.ie/QUALITY-11FT-DRYW...QQcmdZViewItem
* 95% of the area is flat and straight, no issues, but I have two dormer windows upstairs that have tricky angles etc on them - how are these handled for tape/joint? ... angle-bead and skim over it?
appreciate the resource !
