My son has just bought his first house and wants to remove a connecting
door between two rooms and fill the void.
The house is an ex70's council property and the doorway is upstairs. I
am assuming that it is a stud and partition wall but I suppoose that it
could be breeze block, but unlikely.
Am I correct in thinking that the easiest way is.....
remove the existing door and frame.
nail/screw in some timber battens across and up/down the space
nail on some plasterboard to cover
apply a skim of plaster
wait and then decorate
The only bit I am not too sure on is the plastering,,I have tried this
in the past but not very good at it. Is there any "all in one, easy to
apply, ready mixed, foolproof" plaster product available that I could
buy or do I still have to resort to a bucket, water and powder jobbie ?
Ant tips or advice would be much appreciated.
