    Default Been Busy


    Lightswitch is going before anyone mentions it, might eBay it as it looks quite vintage.


    This was brick a couple of days ago, old plaster just fell off.


    Todays efforts still drying after polishing, again this was mostly brick and my new door frame.

    If the cabbing continues to be so bad I might be open to offers

    To be a really good plasterer, you have to have dreams about flat walls, and nightmares about the "topsy turvy" house...

    Looking Good!

    I had no choice, when I bought the house 7 yrs ago as soon as I took the wallpaper down, all three levels of it the walls soon joined it on the floor, a guy I had cove and artex for me previously who also plastered popped round to quote for me, he was reasonable all the way but still the average cost to do a room was £200-£300, as I'd maced myself up to the hilt to escape ghetto town I had to learn and learn quick, my plasterer mate gave me lessons as he had more than enough work to do at the time anyway, my 1st effort I managed to spread half a bag across 4 walls, even he was surprised at how far it'd gone and the fact i'd managed to retain the outer corners shape without beads, that room now needs doing again as I didn't know what bonding was at the time and the plaster has lifted again, I did the kids and the bathroom and kitchen to what I would call 6.5% standard, the sad thing is it's a 1920's house and the existing sand and lime is at varied levels, I chop out the blown stuff and bond it before skimming it, it just goes to show any man given a bit of will and patience to mess up and try again can do it eventually, I rate myself as an 8 right now, time is against me so I'm one coating, two coat produces better results unless you are prepared to knock it up sloppy and then the excess provides the second coat so to speak.
