    MF internal insulation walls

    Can you not get a fixing because the last joist is too far away from the wall? Can you fix galv angle to the existing wall then fix track to the angle? Depends how much the current wall kicks out. Alternatively cross batten the ceiling first then you can fix trim to the batten

    Plastering check

    As mentioned, get some paint on it. And if there is imperfections give them a light rub with 120 grit sand paper and fill any hollows with easifill and again sand down. Or better still get it painted and if theres anything your not happy with tell your plasterer.

    Plastering check

    Biggest thing with domestics is managing customer expectations. There are different options with different prices. Majority of people I'd say go for a re-skim but as said above it's purely decorative. The walls should be a smooth paintable finish but they won't be straightened up much.

    From what I've read, you'd need 2 vans just for all your trowels.:lol:

    Calories Per Day

    Heart rate, weight, age, where you're getting calories from etc all factor in. There is a formula that you can chuck all of that into and you will know how many calories you require just to function, loose weight, gain weight. I reckon a spread that's not chasing his arse burns 3000 if the...

    Should gaps be filled before coving?

    No doubt there's the same gap at the bottom being covered by the skirting. There's nothing to worry about.

    Bathroom price

    Is your mate a plasterer? I wouldn't price a wall without looking at it. Is the suite in? How big is it? What substrate? Is it 10th floor flat? What's parking like? Is there other bathrooms or is his dad likely to come in and take a hangover pat halfway through a gauge? To many variables to...

    Downsize van?

    I guess it depends what you do most of the time. I know a domestic spread with a combi and always had small vans. I've got medium height medium wheel base transit and still need my lock up.

    Drop film?

    Never had an issue. I price it into jobs but I also keep a few XL rolls in van for those jobs were the brick work isn't covered as agreed or furniture hasn't been moved as agreed. Saves walking away from a job and disrupting the diary. Sticks well but doesn't take the paint off. Sticks well to...

    Certain boards manufactured in 2016 had issues. BG were sending primer to sites to compensate or offered to refund PVA but only if it was Unibond. It was either over cooking at manufacture or the recycling process is what I was told "off the record"

    Used both and I'd recommend JUB all day long. You do rub it up but it's not quite like sand & cement as they'd have you believe. Also I'm finding it hangs around far too long to get any decent coverage rubbed up with the current weather.
