Carpentry & Joinery Question
My staircase curves round and cuts into the ceiling in the corner of my kitchen. These stairs are boxed in with a box that seems far larger than is necessary to just cover the stairs. Is there any good reason why this might have been done? Would it be practical to have the box replaced by something that fits closer to the stairs and thus does not intrude upon the kitchen head-space quite so much?
Hi there is not any need to have them so large . It was just time saving to fit a large box over it . It i expect can be dun smaller .

As master class says , its been done for ease and speed . My company has in some lofts started to use galvmesh and bond and skim the underside . It gives a better job but after meshing and the work involved ( time between applying plaster ) is more costly if it was this job only would take two trips = two days work .
