My 1988 house has the upstairs walls made of plasterboard. They are only
2inches thick. There were constructed by using a batten on the ceiling and
on the floor and nailing a plasterboard panel to them. Scraps of
plasterboard were dabbed on and then the other panel was stuck onto the
other side and nailed to the top and bottom.
I need to be talking with some builders - is there a common name for this
type of construction that I should be using (other than crap)?
If you lean on any upstairs wall made this way you can feel it give. The
only place where its more substantial seems to be door frames. The houses
near me were half finished, then the builder went under than somebody else
finished them off, and I suspect a similar thing has gone on all over the
place to save money!
