Plaster Details at the Back Bay Brownstone Renovation
MULTIVISTA 3D LASER SCAN
We used Multivista to capture a customized 3D scan of the entire space. Some might view scanning as a luxury; we find it to be worth every penny. It’s awesome to pull up actual dimensions right on the Multivista app. For example, Tim explained they found a random wire coming out of a wall—so they used the scan to identify what it was for and only had to pull down one piece of blue board in the basement to free up the wire. A simple, clean, quick resolution using accurate dimensions. We will be implementing Multivista laser 3D scans on all of our future projects.
Blueboard and plastering are integral to the NS Builders signature flat wall finish—and we’re taking it to the next level in this project. Traditionally, we use blueboard—gypsum board—and then start with a scratch coat over the seams and screwheads. Then we use a 14-inch trowel over the entire surface. It gets you a really flat result. But this time we’re working with Trowel Inc. and they’re employing a straight edge, true-to-coat process—they are using long pieces of aluminum to true up an entire wall. The kitchen and living room walls and ceilings catch the light in such a way that we need to execute the highest level of finish possible. The ceiling lights are trimless and set with a 1/8-inch mud ring before the scratch coat. Everything is set with a laser, control points established, and perimeter lines snapped.
Going the extra mile in meticulous plastering on this project provides a superior flat finish.
