Lining steel-framed studio with Gyprock and OSB

IMG_5279.jpgWe have finally finished lining our studio (a steel framed shed) We settled on using OSB on the ceiling and walls in the main living area, and Gyprock sheeting in on the end walls and in the bathroom! We are thrilled with the result! Still have a few finishing touches to do, but nearly there.

Hi @DIYgals

 

Was there a particular reason you chose to use OSB boards? It looks beautiful, will you be putting a clear protective coating on it or leaving it to age? It's all coming together and looking wonderful. 

 

Please keep us updated with your progress, we look forward to seeing the entire project finished.

Re: Lining Steel Framed Studio with Gyprock and OSB

Thanks @EricL ,

 

There were a few reasons we went with OSB, it's cheap, it goes up relatively quick, as well as not feeling overly confident flushing Gyprock on the ceiling we were a little concerned that with the shed having a steel frame the gyprock joints might crack with the movement of the steel with the change in temperature throughout the day/night. 

 

We have put a clear coat for a bit of protection, unfortunately nothing we put on it will stop the timber from yellowing with time.
