HOW TO INSTALL AN INTERROOM ARCH (part 4)
Now you can do the profile. In our case, it will be necessary to cut off 8 parts of different sizes from the UD profile:
1 meter – 2 pcs.
30 cm – 4 pcs.
120 cm – 2 pcs.
Having departed from the edge of the wall 15 mm, on both sides we fasten the newcomers to the profile.
Protruding corners are cut off on the bottom of vertically mounted profiles.
To the profiles, with an interval of 15 cm, blanks cut from gypsum cardboard are screwed with screws. Hats of self-tapping screws should be slightly recessed in drywall.
If the cut of the arched part turned out to be uneven, then it needs to be aligned so that both halves are in the same plane.
From the existing profiles you need to make arched elements. For this, every 5–7 cm along the entire length of the profile, strictly opposite to each other, cuts are made on both sides. The severed part of the semicircle can be used as a pattern – to bend the profile along it so that the cut parts are inside the frame. The excess is simply cut off.
The resulting parts are fastened with screws on the edge of the arch.

Now it’s the turn to mount the curved sheet. It is important to remember that when wet it is very fragile and can break. Here you can not do without an assistant – he will hold the workpiece, and the second person will fasten.
It’s more convenient to start from the center, moving to the edges. Fastening is carried out immediately from two sides, and it is better to screw the screws away from the edge so as not to break it.
Having reached the end of the profile, drywall is cut off. You can chamfer the inside of the ends of the sheet so that the edges fit as tightly as possible against the wall.
Since drywall is wet, further work can be done no earlier than 12 hours – when it dries.
At the next stage, we use an arched corner, putty plasterboard.
The resulting arch must be sanded until a smooth surface is obtained. As with puttying the walls, starting and finishing putty is used.
Finishing work at the request of the owners – you can paint, wallpaper or do something at your discretion.
You need to take care of the wiring. You need to take care of the wiring.
If you plan to install fixtures in the arch, then the wiring is carried out before the sheathing.
