Wasn't sure if to post this in the carpentry section..

I've plasterboard a wall, but one side of the door frame is flush with the plasterboard.. the over side the door frame sticks out..

I guess a pro plasterer could skim to suit but I prefer it all to be flush as I'm an amateur and little things like that will trip me up.

It is an ok option to plane the frame down so it's all flush to the plasterboard, and then use strips to pack it back out, so I have something to skim up to and it will all be pretty even?

Thanks in advance

if your having a spread in,then why dont you even the lining to both sides and let them finish it flush to the lining?
why create loads of work for your self?

You mean skim over so the wall and frame is the same level? Won't it crack the plaster when I attach the architrave though?

you should try and make the gap even so there is a few mm either side of the frame so it can be plastered.the architrave will cover the part where the frame meets the plaster.
