Hi,

New to plastering and boarding, so hopefully someone can help please?

Firstly can't get the plasterboards up the stairs as the angle in the door way won't allow (tried everything)... can I just cut the board down the middle (so 1200x2400 - cut down to 600x2400) then just re-join with tape before plastering? Or would I need to fill with compound? Also the boards are tapered edges, so I would presume I can't join a cut edge with a tapered?

Any advice would be really good.

Thanks

Depending on the state of the house, you can remove some floorboards and section of downstairs ceiling and get them up into a bedroom, bypassing the stairs.
