    Currently gutting the main bathroom, I have pinched 500 mm from the bedroom next door and built a stud wall, went to purchase some waterproof plasterboard and they only have sheets of 1200 x 800.

    Should I go for normal board and skim and tank with something ?

    Many thanks will get some in the morning.

    Should I plaster as normal or just tile direct to board?

    If it’s in a wet area then MR plasterboards are pointless. They are not designed to go in a shower area.

    I would use either:-

    Tile backer board.
    Plasterboard and then tank.

    Never skim plasterboard if you’re tiling it. It does more harm than good.

    A very busy day with the sparks in, looks like a late night popping ceilings.

    Ist fix in with bathroom and new fuse box fitted, and all backplates marked out.

    I have started to reboard the ceiling in bathroom and have just thought should I add insulation like rock wool or something from the bathroom to bedroom wall ( stud wall ), it will be the bath and shower wall ?

    Thoughts please
