I'm in the process of remodelling my house - there are two rooms - which are having new power points.. switches and rads.. but nothing else.

If we were to get the chasing done - could we then totally decorate these.. as in paint and paper - the lot..

then 'cover' the doors.. so as not to let dust in - when the room next door has walls taken down - stud walls put up - and are generally remodelled.. we wont need to use the rooms at all .. so not gaining access is not really an issue..

I had thought i should not do final paint and paper .. until the buildng work has been done - but I'm wondering if it would be ok ..


any hints would be great :)

Yes you can get away with what you're planning. You'll get some dust in your decorated bits from vibration as your other walls are getting knocked out but not a lot, as long as all your paintwork is dry before you start the walls then any dust you do get will dust off.

Easiest way- 2 layers of Visqueen or similar heavy gauge polythene taped over the door (preferably taped to the wall outside the doorframe) with the sticky tape/glue that the asbestos removers use.
