    Hi all,

    I'm looking into converting an under-stairs cupboard area into a small cloakroom / toilet. The 'wall' directly parallel with the hallway is made of wooden panelling. Can/should I attach plasterboard directly to the inside of that and then have it skimmed? An alternative would be to construct a proper stud wall against the panelling, but that would obviously reduce the internal space which is already pretty tight!

    Are there likely to be any issues with doing that in practical terms, or related to building regs?

    Thanks.

    Not a problem at all, as long as there are no sockets of pipes behind the wall. Screw the plasterboard to the wood panelling, tape the joints, if any, then skim, no problem.
