The types of walls and ceilings you choose for your home will be influenced by where you're building, what sort of building code restrictions apply and what the climate's like, among other things. The choices you make will also affect things like soundproofing, fireproofing, lighting and climate control too, so it's important that you understand any decisions you're making.
The Wall and Ceiling Checklist below covers the issues you need to consider to ensure your walls and ceilings are right for your home. The checklist will save you time, hassle and money. Print it out and take it with you when you discuss walls with your builder, architect or designer early on in the building process.
