    Hello all,

    I'm redoing the bathroom and will be using quite a large tile (400x300) on all walls. Two internal walls are plastered and are nowhere near flat, so to save me some pain later on I think it's best it comes off to be boarded to give me a nice flat surface to tile on and extra strength for the heavy tiles..

    It's the original walls of a 1950s council house, timber studs with ash block/brick in between. I was planning on using an SDS drill with cranked chisel and taking off all plaster down to the studs and attaching boards to these, probably with adhesive to level and mechanical fixings after.

    Does this method sound ok? I'm worried about possible damage to the wall, particularly the plaster on the other side. Should I be?

    Overboarding is not an option as space really is that tight given the desired furniture going in.

    Thanks for any advice.
