*This job needs to be ideally completed this weekend: 26/27 Aug*

I need a qualified plasterer to complete the plastering in my bathroom on 3 out of 4 walls.
- the ensuite bathroom is small approx 2m x 2m.
- the plastering needs to be completed to a condition that can be water-proofed and then tiled over
- The vanity wall does not need to be plastered as we are waiting on the recessed shaving cabinet. the other 3 walls need to be finished (joined to surrounding plaster).
- The shower walls will need to be hung with 6mm villaboard to suit the 6mm flashing on the showerline tile over tray.
- the tile base flashing needs to be nailed in place to the studs. there is also a piece of angle that needs to be nailed into the corner of the shower wall.
- the villaboard will need to be joined to the existing surrounding 10mm plasterboard. The studs will need to be packed out as required to make this smooth join. the joins between villa and plasterboard should be done using back-blocking (unless you advise otherwise)
- the rest of the walls will be hung with 10mm Aquachek plasterboard
- the plaster/villa board will need to be 'roughed in' around the plumbing
- need to install a small shower recess niche, to be discussed with approved plasterer. (dta-australia[Content Moderated] m-cflex-shower-wall-recess)
- as you will see from the photos, no ceiling plaster or ceiling joins required.
- the 3 walls to be plastered require roughly 2/3 of the wall height to be plastered maybe less.
- The joins require 2 coats of gypock base-coat with paper tape.
- finally, require the tile underlay to be nailed in place on the floor

All materials are supplied:
- 10mm Aquachek plasterboard
- 6mm Villaboard
- Gyprock base coat
- paper joining tape
- plasterboard nails
- underlay nails
- stud packers
- shower wall recess
