Plasterboard question

    Hi. I’m building a metal stud wall in the garage to make a utility room. I’m painting over the existing brick walls (not dry walling the whole room). My question is how do I seal the joint between the new plasterboard wall and the brick walls? They meet at a 90 degree angle.

    Also, the outer side of this plasterboard wall will be 2m from the garage door, making it like a mini garage.

    Do I need to do anything special to seal the exposed side?

    How should I seal the gap between the plasterboard and the concrete floor (I’m using skirting board on the inner side)?

    Can I use normal plasterboard or should I use moisture resistant? I plan to use waterproof paint to match the brick.

    Thanks!

    If there’s no moisture coming through the walls then normal plasterboard is fine, if there is, then you’ve a larger problem than building a stud wall.

    there’s no moisture coming through the walls. It’s just exposed when the garage door is open.
