I'm pretty sure this is the product you're talking about. http://www.roosinternational.com/p_wall_liners.htmI've heard of a "wallpaper" they use to blend the seams of new to old.
Not real up on it but I bet there's a way..........
I'm working on the assumption that 102 year old plastered homes have poor (if any) insulation and alot of thermal transfer. When bandboards get cold, the joist bays get cold. Your plaster over wood lathe is much more dense than todays wallboard, and one is going to expand/contract faster than the other. Depending on the insulation situation, 102 years old probably nill, i'll stand by my comment. I hope that i'm wrong, but my experiences tell me otherwise.plaster is on the inside of the house bubba. climate control baby
I think you should read a little bit on plaster work before you do to much more of it.i hear ya thanks for the input for real. well if it does crack then it will match the rest of the house...lol
Then first, why did you ask, and second, why on earth would you butt sheetrock to plaster in the middle of any wall or ceiling?:no:i have been plastering for 10 years i think i know what im doing.:clap:

To be honest i was havent really done to many houses that old in the time spand. Ok tell me this.. It was in a hall way which is about 4'x20'. Also it was an insurance job which has a budget which you can't increase, the repair area was towards the back of the hallway. Soo if i were to do as you suggested would add that much more rip out and install(not an option). Its going on day five from original plaster and so far there has been no cracks and yes there has been a 25 degree temp change as well. So maybe this is yet another chance for you to learn something new.Then first, why did you ask, and second, why on earth would you butt sheetrock to plaster in the middle of any wall or ceiling?:no:
You either re-plaster the area or remove all the plaster to the nearest corners of the space and replace it all with sheetrock.
BTW, I've been in this industry for over 23 years and I'm still learning something new every day.
Great link! Thanks! :thumbup:I think you should read a little bit on plaster work before you do to much more of it.
