Preparing ceilings for plasterboarding

Having ripped out the old ceiling (Painted crumbly polystyrene) we can now get the ceiling insulated and plaster boarded back up.

A network of additional woodwork was screwed in around the beams, this enabled the insulation to be filled inside the gaps and the plaster boards screwed up to this wooden matrix. Leaving some of the original beam exposed to keep the authentic cottagey feel. But upgrading to better heat and better looks.

Next job to rebuild the internal wall which once we started knocking down, realized it was actually just a boxed in door frame!!
