dry wall construction


Explanation:
German Trockenbau aludes to the use of various types of "Platten". This method is used contrary to "Nassverputzen" walls made of wet plaster. On the other hand Trockenbau would also incluse the use of plywood or masonite paneling. From the context you have to decide what is being used.
