    Wood wool, Lime OneCoat and Bauer’s advice/help needed

    Not really. That means locating all the fixings through the wood wool board, removing the board and then resin them in. Wait a while. Hammer in, next board. And then you’ve got the issue of the boards lining up accurately if you want to proceed to the next board whilst you wait. You’d be...

    Wood wool, Lime OneCoat and Bauer’s advice/help needed

    Just been reflecting on this thread - you’re right, I should wait for pftmonojetman to come back to me. A little bit of context - if I was to pull of work I’d done, I wanted to get it done today so I could get the materials back to my supplier for a refund. No chance in next few weeks...

    Hi - introducing myself and my 8x4 van conversion.

    That is a worrying sight. You can't make out the vehicle registration plate on that - has he even read the highway code? tsk.

    Lime ceiling follow up

    Also, did anyone consider that naming it the 'private section' sounds all a bit euphemistic? I'm just glad you specified it as 'the' rather than 'my'. :LOL:

    Lime ceiling follow up

    Customer/highly motivated DIYer. Have never attempted plastering as it seems to all so easily go to wrong - particularly as you're time pressured. You can't just start/stop and take your time as readily as any other task when you're learning for the first time. My current room has external...

    Lime ceiling follow up

    Really helpful post - thank you. It turns out I came to the right place... In my case, I need a 30mm build so figured a 25mm Bauwer light plus Bauwer finish would be ideal. Why do you recommend another finishing coat or are you separating the membrane coat and final finish coat, both of which...
