Taking Down a Plaster Wall.


Hey everyone new to this forum. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. i have been scratching my head about this for a couple weeks. i know nothing about plaster except they stopped using it about 20 yrs before i was born, anyway. i have plaster walls and ceilings in my new house (98yrs old) no lath though, used a cement type board instead. There is a wall (non-load) between my kitchen and living room that i am planning on removing. After i remove the wall i am going to cover the entire ceiling with 1/4" drywall which will cover the gap where the previous wall was. How can i fill the gap that will be left on the wall where the previous wall was? Hope this makes sense. And thanks again in advance.

-Shane

Quick correction, plaster walls are still in production today.

As to your question, you lost me.

Why the 1/4 over the ceiling? If the old plaster is failing then it needs to come down not be cover up/
Once the walls out you have to see if there's any support where the wall was to attach the rock to and see just how thick what you removed was.
