    Hi All...
    I am building a garden room using 4x2 for studwork actual size is average size for the 35 4.8m lengths is 97x47, however I am using 5.4m lengths for the bottom & double top plates. The 5.4m lengths are 92x43 which will may cause a problem with studs protruding out by 5mm on all the internal walls leaving the top and bottom plates recessed when viewed internally.
    I dont want to have problems fixing plasterboard at the top and the bottom. is this an issue or am I missing something.
    Best regards
    Damo

    Couldn't you put a good bead of gripfill top and bottom, screw the verticals or use adhesive foam.

    Plasterboard doesn’t need fixing at bottom skirt hides gap .Top will be fine , each side will be only 2.5mm.

    Get one side flush. If you suffer with OCD rip a 5mm of 45 down and pack it out flush.

    Thanks for the replies...
    I'm building the walls on the already built new floor and erecting them from there, so my problem will be only on the internal walls because the outside will be flush. I like the idea of packing out if I don't get any shrinkage during the dry spell. So thanks Avvicci for that idea.
