So I've got a frontroom ive got to take back to brickwork float in hardwall and reskim whole room but I'm doing it over a couple off weekend , question is my mate thinks I can do the ceiling before hardwalling the walls surely I will get a crack around the internal as there is no coving going up

My customer has a nasty 4inch crack that needs filling, I said Monday, I'll dub it out in the morning, then fill it up flush in the afternoon.
