There are a few types of plasterboard available in Bulgaria. All are made from aerated gypsum plaster – hence the Bulgarian name “GypsCarton”, and are covered both sides with strong paper. The standard sheet of plasterboard in most merchants in Bulgaria has a grey paper back and ivory coloring on the front facing side. The standard size is 12.5 mm (thickness), although different dimensions are available.
Preparation of the paperwork especially related to new construction is a difficult and long process, sometimes rather clumsy because you have to deal with the municipal administration so it is not recommended to do it by yourself. Before you start the construction permit procedure you have to check if the plot of land you own is as we call it in Bulgaria “regulated” or it is not.
