    New plasterboard wall question

    Hi all, I have build a new stud wall and plasterboarded it. Should I do anything specific (before plastering) where the new wall meets the existing wall at right angles to stop cracks appearing? I was wondering if I need to use a flexible filler before plastering or something? Cheers

    LED Lights - Any Good?

    I had these installed in my kitchen. Not cheap, but much more efficient to run than standard spots. No bulbs to change either! I've been very pleased. Product name is quad 50 They won't give you your 'mood' coloured lighting though! http://orluna.com/
