Asked on diynot.com but its a bit slow over there.
Had the old back boiler and gas fire removed from the chimney breast in front room, Were hoping to put in a multi-fuel stove in place but quotes are a little out of our price range at the moment,
So in the mean time I want to but a boxed hole in place (ornament box if you will)
I've built a stud frame with boxing it off with plywood in mind but I would love smooth edges if possible, which I guess means using plasterboard instead.
Whats your thoughts on this?
My experience in plastering is limited to repairing one hole on a brick wall, which didn't go so bad.
