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 have bigger screws in those that go into a bigger piece of wood behind the plywall.

    I guess it’s the studs then. So my 6x6 cm squared timber that I am installing vertically is going into studs behind the plywall

      Yeah, that’s essentially fine. You likely can hang cabinets off of them, but I’m not a cabinet installer or a framer. I’m a nurse that used to sell building supplies. You should ask him if you need more reinforcement for your cabinets. For your drywall everything’s fine.

        Alright cool.

        Yeah well I am just a nurse too (but in germany) or else I’d not have to ask here lol.

        I sent a picture of the subconstruction to the kitchen company and they will tell me more.

          My suggestion is a oral administration etoh at this point, then.

            lol :-) I really almost sh*t my pants cause I thought the house was constructed good and suddenly everyone tells me to contact help and that I am lost.
