I've seen more in the market this week - think it is starting to move now. All the merchants are open again so it should soon unblock

Just on the point of getting this done. I managed to miss the joint filler - I thought it was board, FST, paint. It appears that it’s board (with an expansion gap at 10m), joint fill (50m2 per 5kg bag unless joints left open when it goes to 25m2), FST. My plan is to use a dry lining contractor to get the boards up, I am debating if the rest of the job should be DIY, done by the liners or a combination of me & the decorators.
Any advice?

Other than "Don't do it!" I would suggest you get someone experienced to give you an inclusive price to include loading out, cutting out sockets, joint stick and their surface finish.
