    Hairline cracks in render

    Trying to remember what the sand was like. It's the only thing I can put it down to as the other walls are fine and that was with the different sand. All done at the same time as well. I'm hoping I have some left over sand in the garage that I can you and check.

    Hairline cracks in render

    Cheers for all the replies! There was a shovel of lime in the top coat and the wall is a South Westerly I did keep misting it through out the day and the following day! The exact same mix on the other wall is fine apart from the sand which was still plastering sand but from a different merchants.

I tied abit of cord to the hook then put a screw in a board and tied ya other end to that - so if it slipped then the prop wouldn’t fall very far away from me or worse go through the thin glass. Not sure if it’s meant for that...

    Lower Back ache

    See a chiropractor or someone. My lower back was hurting because my pecs were tight and pulling me ever so slightly forward (without noticing) which in turn put pressure on my lower back.
