    Goi g to France

    Working in France may be harder than you think. It is very restrictive, it bit like going around the UK doing gas plumbing work. You may find expats that will pay cash in hand but most French employ local people.

    140 year old house (advice needed!)

    My question is: What interior insulation can I use that is cost effective? Because of the cement finish outside, lime is useless as it won’t breath? Can I dry line it with a 4 inch cavity and an insulated slab? Should I vent the cavity? My answer is. It’s only the facade that is listed, I can...

    Can I fill this with multi or need to do bonding?

    It is going to need bonding, then fit skirting and use Easyfill 60. You could replace with higher skirting to reduce the amount of filling and sanding. Learn from you mistakes, think the job through before plastering next time.
