Re: Ceiling - gypsum sheet thickness

'It's not the moisture from inside that is the main problem, as the sheets are painted, It's the moisture in the air Humidity, that is in the ceiling space in the roof, coming from out side, If this space in not ventilated with air flow the moisture forms and forms droplets, then drips down to the c...

Re: John's budget build

This little beauty is about to be installed in the gable end ceiling void front of house. This 8" blower extracts more than 20 cubic metres of air per minute. It will be coupled with a special thermocouple digital switch that I imported after countless hours searcing the web. The switch has multiple...

Re: John's budget build

Last weekend we poured the slab for the front patio (2.5 cubes). Thai workers keep scratching their heads that I don't have overs or unders.

Re: Ceiling - gypsum sheet thickness

"You have most likely thought of it but make sure you have a good think about what you need and your electrical wiring and anything else in the ceiling space in place prior to the ceiling being placed."

Yes Barney, we have about 2-3 days work in the ceiling void before the ceiling crew starts.

Re: Ceiling - gypsum sheet thickness

Thanks Barney and Kopkei. Sometimeswoodworker (over on Coolthaihouse) concurs that the 100 baht/sq m seems reasonable, so I am going down the track with this installer. However, I don't agree with his estimate of 90 sheets. I will get him back and we will measure up together, then go together to buy...

Re: Ceiling - gypsum sheet thickness

"FAILED Installation! You can see in the first photo the ceiling battens running the length of the room, Sheets are always to be fixed at RIGHT angles to the batten run, hence the sheets should have been run across the room. Now you have a ceiling joint running the length of the room 8mt?? or so lon...

Re: Gypsum Ceiling - labour cost

Does any have any recent experience as to labour costs to fit and finish a gypsum ceiling. I am being quoted 100 baht per square metre - how does this compare? Regards, John

Re: Gypsum Ceiling

A lot of great information there - thank you so much guys. My bathroom walls are only as high as privacy demands. There a couple of more metres to ceiling height. There won't be any moisture problem here.

Re: Ceiling - gypsum sheet thickness

Have found the answers I needed by downloading a plasterboard design and installation guide from Boral Australia. The two standard Boral thicknesses in Oz are 10 mm and 13 mm (equating approx. to 9.5 mm and 12 mm in Thailand). Firstly, only 10 mm board can use 60 cm batten spacings - thicker board m...

Ceiling - gypsum sheet thickness

I am getting close to ceiling installation and perhaps some members can give me the benefit of their experience. I have set the roof frame up with rafters at 1.2m centres, and transverse steel ceiling purlins at 60cm centres. I am sure that in Oz we used 12mm thick Gyprock sheets. However the thicke...

Re: surveillance cameras

^ Maybe you could run the Yi's power supplies (adapters) off their own UPS, say 1000 W. Being only 5V and maybe around 0.5 A, I reckon the city power would need to be off for a fair amount of time before the UPS runs out of juice. If your assumption of 0.5A drain is close, then it would use 2.5 Wat...

Re: John's budget build

All of the external windows and doors have now been installed, and I am generally very pleased with the result. Just two minor hiccups which the manufacturer is now addressing. The screen for one of the sliding doors is being redone, and there is an issue with the window in the main bedroom. The spe...

Hi Barney The online standard coverage for personal accident and medical expenses was 200,000 baht in each case. A button at the end of these lines opened up an options box with additional premium to increase these amounts to 500,000 in each case. I am now not sure how much the extra premium was, bu...
