Covered damp chimney breast

This chimney breast had damp coming through the plaster and the customer wanted it covering over with new. So I suggested dry walling over and plastering.

I used 3×2 stud wall timber to the breast area keeping the timber spaced away from the surface with plastic so that the wood would not absorb the moisture.

I also made a cut for ventilation.

Next I added the plaster board.

Corner trim is added

Next part of the job is to plaster.
