That looks far more efficient than the modern method of hanging it.

Far more efficient than 4 x 8, 4 x 12 or 4 x 16 sheets? I think not.

There's an awful lot of mudding that they didn't show. Way too many seams.

I don't think that's "sheetrock" rather lathe for the plaster. I
*think* the idea is to squeeze the plaster through the seams to hold
