Hi, some advise please,
Having met the builders and explained what I'd like and some of the more important concepts, they've come back with a quote...
It doesn't resemble much what I'd asked for, so I need to meet again to discuss.
They want to use British-Gypsum metal framing(which wasn't a surprise) but they mention using I-stud. In every diagram I have seen C-stud has been used. Is there any difference? In recent research I've found there is a acoustud, why wouldn't they have chosen this? My wall are generally 2.4m high.
A wood stud room in a room would have the ceiling resting on the stud work, is there any reason that a metal stud has to be anchored at the ceiling and use a suspended ceiling?
Unfortunately they have called some of the walls 'partitions' and suggest staggered stud. Despite me having tried explaining the importance of the distance between the walls!
How much detail should I see in a builders quote? it all seemed very vague to me...
Any advice gratefully received, I'm hoping to meet them again in a few days time.
