I'm hoping to have plaster-over-blue-board walls, but I may or may not
be able to find a plasterer I feel comfortable letting inside my
house. So far I met with three (with estimates ranging from $2200 to
$7100) but I am not comfortable with any one of them. So my plan is to
keep looking but I am eager to put up blue board to keep the cellulose
insulation from falling out. So I am wondering about this. Suppose I
put up blue board but then end up not finding anyone to do the
plastering. Would I be able to change the course and just complete it
as if it were regular drywall?
Absolutely, yes. Go ahead and try a secluded portion of the wall. Work
with a low angle incandescent light to highlight the highs and lows,
and results under normal lighting will look surprisingly neat. If you
use setting type drywall mud (preferable) mix small batches and clean
tools frequently as you go. Good luck.
