Question Build A Seamless White Wall

Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Know of a web site that might have plans or an idea?

I have bought a house with a wide open basement. After I put in a ceiling I should have about 10-12' of height to use and enough room to actually build and incorporate a corner into it.

Any help, guidance, free labor would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps he means a wall with a curved base (no corner on the bottom)?

It depends on how much of an arc you want. If its a small arc then you maybe able to use 1/4" sheetrock bend across the corner studs and stacking it up to almost meeting the thickness of the other sheetrock. If you're using 1/2" sheetrock then you are going to match up well. But if your local code requires 5/8" sheetrock then you going to have to add an addition 1/4" sheetrock over the 1/2" and use 3 1/4" over the corner. Another thing that might help is to lay the sheetrock horizonally instead of vertically to make it bend easier. Also you might try either to moisten the sheetrock before bending or steam the rock before bending.

The also make a bending material intended for making curve walls. On the backside of the material is slotted so it can bend. I never use this material but I heard its pretty expensive and hard to fine.

Thanks for the info LostDoggy. I'll look around for the slotted stuff. Never knew sheet rock could bend that far. I was planning on finishing the walls first then putting up the 'seams' after that. So I won't have to worry too much about code, that will already be done.

Does anyone have information about the material Doggy was talking about?

Another article talked about high flex drywall going to 10" radius when wetted.

We have a product we use here at work which gives a 3" internal radius, but I can't find the spec right now. Seems small to me for photo work.

how about a wood frame supporting fiberglass? you won't be able to hammer into it, but it's easy to work.

You should be able to do this by building a small curve starting from approx 2-3 feet up the wall and ending the same out into the floor. You can put gyproc on in pieces and the curve is finished off in the mudding. This is the same basic concept as putting an arch doorway in. The issue with putting this in permanently is that if you want a long bend in the wall you will lose a considerable amount of floor space. A small curve at the intersection of the floor and wall will be noticeable.
