    i have a completely stripped room .... one outside wall, one party wall, two internal walls, and a ceiling (below a flat roof).

    Is there any preferred order to plasterboard all this?

    Thanks
    Ian

    Good time to vent /insulate / VCL your ceiling void. I hope you are putting a parging coat on the outside wall.

    It's the top floor of a stone built Victorian townhouse, so the outside 'wall' is actually a coom ceiling with a pitched roof on the exterior. There is plenty of ventilation from between the sarking boards (there is no roof felt).
