With the ceiling boarding complete, we started taping & jointing the boards to provide a (hopefully) smooth finish to the new ceiling.
The joins were taped with plasterboard tape and skimmed over with a thin coat of plaster.
After letting this go off for 24 hours we then attacked the ceiling with a sanding pad and lots and lots of elbow grease.
Eventually, the end result was a nearly perfectly smooth ceiling, ready for sealing & painting!
Here’s the room so far looking towards the shower…
We’ve also applied a Dunlop shower tanking/waterproofing kit to the walls immediately around the shower tray. This should help to ensure that the plasterboard is fully protected against damage from moisture by creating a waterproof rubberised top-coat from floor to nearly ceiling height on the walls most exposed to water.
