Hey!

Currently doing drywall myself and I am using 6x6 cm squared timber around my outside walls.

The problem is they aren’t as stable as the other walls inside the house because of the 6x6 cm squared timbers that are about 30cm distance from each other.

I will screw my plasterboards on the squared timber and only one plasterboard, not two.

I have two pictures of what my construction looks like from far and one from close.

Maybe someone can give me advice before I install the plasterboard onto it.

The only problem I currently see is finding the subconstruction once I put the plasterboards back on. But other than that, if I find them can I install the cabinets safely?

      I think you’re right. If this picture was taken in the US or Canada, I would be panicked for OP. But honestly I thing it might be something we don’t do here so it looks crazy, but only to us.

        You’re right. After moving to Germany, I can tell there is nothing wrong with this picture, but it sure looks crazy out of context.

        Interestingly enough, most residential houses I looked at had solid, steel reinforced concrete walls everywhere.

        I think it just depends on how he’s attaching it. If it’s going into the top and sill plates behind the OSB, there’s not really much of a chance of it going anywhere.

          But those gaps at the base, where the stud should be abutting a sill plate…what will the drywall be attached to?

            The sill plate is actually behind the OSB and looks thicker than anything we use. I don’t honestly know if there’s studs back there too, but I’d imagine so. I really don’t know how that wall is constructed.

      What does this mean? Am I doing something wrong?

        No, I was actually translating it for the American construction folks. What you’re doing is actually how we cover up plaster walls on remodels. It’s just not something I’ve ever dealt with when I was a construction supply salesperson.
