 “Make it a home”

Internal Linings   

After the council have approved the wall frames you can now add your internal wall linings.  


The internal linings really make a difference to a container home. 

Commonly plasterboard is used to line the walls of residential homes and units. Plasterboard is a very heavy product and will take two people to hold and fix the sheets into place with a combination of glue and nails. The plasterboard is attached directly to the inside of stud (timber or steel). 

The smooth plaster finish makes it a home not just a metal box.

The Internal Wall Lining Process: 

  1. Fix Bath and shower trays in position 

  2. Plumber to connect bath and shower trays, check flashings to wet areas and windows 

  3. Fix all gyprock linings to ceiling and walls, fix all villa board to wet areas 

  4. Fix all gyprock and villa board joints and sand back 

  5. Fix gyprock cornice 

Bath and shower fitting 

To create a bathroom that’s perfect from top to bottom, choose shower fittings that suit your lifestyle and your design scheme. There are a range of shower heads and tap fittings which will bring both functionality and style to your bathroom. Whether you’re tempted by a contemporary, square-shaped shower head or partial to the classic, circular designs, you’ll be sure to find one to suit your unique taste.
