We are nearing the end of our shower/toilet reno and the ceilings are a mess.
They originally weren't too bad - they had architraves which the tiler removed (tearing layer in lots of spots), and then the electrician has made a number of holes.
The painter has said that the large holes are going to be tricky to patch, and it's a messy surface.
Project is already way over budget, and timing is tight so looking for a cost effective solution.
How hard would it be to sheet over the existing ceiling myself (I have no experience, but go ok with a measuring tape) and would I use gyprock? Or too hard to find studs? Or I could try to remove existing ceiling and start fresh? Or encourage painter to do his best? Or bite the bullet and pay a professional?
Any expertise would be much appreciated.
