    After ideas on how best to deal with this gap between the stairs and the wall.
    At the top and bottom the gap is about this size,

    Now the plaster is going to overlap the stairs in the middle as i'm plastering to about 10mm, but top and bottom the gap is larger than this.

    Dot and dab with 6mm board?..... No doubt the original plasterwork varied in depth as well

    No I'm doing a strip of 9mm board along the bottom so I can screed off that then using Hardwall. I don't like the finish of fully boarded.

    Its about 1/3rd of the wall, left as much of the sound stuff where it is, but anything loose came off.
