Levelling up Wonky Thermalite Wall for Kitchen Wall Units

Postby sheepdisease » Fri Feb 27, 2015 1:32 pm

I wondered if you could please help me out as I appreciate your expertise.

I have had three block walls built which don't quite line up and one of them is out of plumb for dividing a lounge/kitchen.

The deviations are approx 1 cm, where one wall is leaning forward towards the top a little and if you look along the walls from side on they are about 1 cm out from flush.

I don't want to start from scratch and was hoping to render the walls so that they all line up plumb in all directions so that I can then dot and dab and then the wall needs to be solid to support the weight of kitchen wall units.

Do you have any advice?

I would use timber batterns if it wasn't for the fact it needs to be strong.

Thanks for your help in advance.

attach a timber batten to the wall where your units need to be, pack it out till its straight.
Dot and dab the plasterboard to the level of the batten.
