Customer done boarding,i was their a few years ago doing his attic,he did same thing,i said every 300mm will do. Best of it not one screw on ceiling needed tightening.

There's a video of a spider building a web on LSD.

Had a similar thing years ago on 5 bed new build, he finished one room for me to look at before he did the rest. Soon as i entered room i pissed myself, never seen so many screws, he had got hold of a duraspin.
Did 2 houses for them and became good friends. :)

I prefer taper edged boards always for skimming,some of the joints are out of line,makes more work for us. Hate square edge.

Actually I don't think there are too many screws. In fact there are clearly screws missing/too far from the edges.
@Donzo you seriously think that every 300mm on a ceiling is acceptable?
Yes,though some prefer 200mm spacing, it would do no harm with that amount of screws but think its overkill on standard 12.5mm. Depends on weight of board.the ceiling is lowered,he has framed it to his own spec.

I need to up my game,,,, joiner says spec is 150mm space on ceilings,more if boards are damp.200mm on walls.standard boards.
