Internal or partition walls can be moved or knocked through in your property, which can change the area design and establish a substantial open plan room design for a large living space or a kitchen diner. When moving or knocking through internal walls, it is critical to understand both the kind of interior wall that it is, and whether or not it's a load bearing wall. Internal walls may be brick or block partitions, timber stud partitions, or even prefabricated wall panels. There are no shortcuts when it comes to ascertaining whether a wall is load bearing or not, it's always worth engaging the services of a structural engineer if you are unsure or cannot view original plans for your property. Load bearing walls can be relocated, but this is generally more costly and involves adding additional load bearing solution, for example steel lintels.
Moving or knocking through internal walls will often entail demolition of the existing wall, reconstructing or restoring the new walls, replastering and moving electrics. It may additionally demand changes to the floor, as in some cases the floors between rooms may not be completely level, and knocking through interior walls can reveal this. Generally moving internal walls will not require planning permission, but you'll need to comply with building regulations for insulation and sound proofing. Consulting with a structural engineer will ensure that any interior wall changes that you plan on doing will keep your house structurally sound.

• Use the tape measurement to measure the cut you wish to make.
• With the help of a pencil, simply mark out the part you wish to cut on the plasterboard’s front side.
• Once marked, place a spirited level over the marked spot on the plasterboard sheet you want to cut.
• Cut a shallow mark into the plasterboard sheet using the Stanley Knife to cut along the edge.
• The cut should be slow and gradual to ensure you do not wander off the edge of the marked area.
• Once the shallow cut has been made, turn the plasterboard sheet on its edge and deliver a quick and sharp push towards the plasterboard’s back and on one side of the cut.
• Place the plasterboard sheet backing against a flat surface ensuring the line of the cut is over an edge. Once done, give a quick and sharp push towards the back of the plasterboard sheet and on the part of the board is reaches beyond the edge.
• Using a fine sandpaper, remove all forms of paper burrs.

How To Put Up Plasterboard
Putting up a plasterboard is a vital process when it comes to home renovations.

Putting up plasterboard is way quicker than wet plastering and also significantly reduces the drying time that can slow down your renovation plans. With a plasterboard, you can delve straight into the decorating stage and achieve a smooth finish. Below are the steps required to put up a plasterboard.
• The first step is cutting the plasterboard to shape which be one of the most challenging parts of the process. This is because you’ll need to fit the board around things such as plug sockets and window sills. As a result, this involves cutting complex shapes rather than just a simple straight line. To get this done, simply mark out the cut required with the use of a tape measure, combination square and spirit level for a better precision. Once done, you can then use a plasterboard pad saw to cut along the marked spots.
• After you made the required cuts, the next step is putting up the plasterboard. And depending on where the boards are going to be put, this could be a very challenging task. If you’re going to put the boards on the ceiling or somewhere very high up, you’d probably need an extra pair of hands for help. To get this done, use the appropriate screws to secure the boards in place if you’re installing them directly on studs. However, if you’d be fixing them onto bricks or blocks, a drywall adhesive is your best bet.
