    9.5mm boards

    Always try to leave a minimum 5mm gap behind upvc door hinges so the plasterer can get his trowel on

    Dump run, hedge trimming and then out on trials bike for a bit.

    Novice - Plasterboarding ceiling at 600mm centers.

    The board manufacturers will say 12.5 is ok, but there is still quite a bit of flex if there is no noggin. 15mm would be better to use. Some pozi-joist are 150mm so in essence, the unsupported span is only 450mm

    I f**k**g hate taping now, but I’m getting a good rate, so I’ll do it. They want to keep the moisture down with all that oak around.

    If you zoom in, you can see Neil Armstrong in the 6th photo. He’s waving from the rim of a crater.

    Same s**t, different year

    Very well. It’s great on the thicker cellotex as it cuts straight and true, and with the smoother blade on slab. Thinner cellotex is quicker with a hand saw. Glad I bought it.

    Plus, having coloured hair makes you automatically mental.

    Hired a mini digger and dumper to dig out a base for a workshop. Couldn’t have picked a weekend with worse weather. Treated myself to a takeaway roast from the local pub for tea today though.

    help on stopping drinking

    Get yourself something else to focus on. My mrs was doing a bottle of wine a night during the week, and a bottle of gin on the weekend. She went to the doctors to be told she was pre-diabetic. She bought a swimming pool and has lost 3 1/2 stone in as many months. We are having a garden building...

    Easy fill kept in a bucket

    The green lid fill and finish is like flint when it sets

    Easy fill kept in a bucket

    Easifill is just as expensive as Smartmix. Use BG joint fillet for first coat, and finish with Smartmix (2 coats)

    First attempt... and I wish I hadn't...

    Sounds like a scene from a Laurel and Hardy film. Have you got a bowler hat and a Hitler moustache by any chance?

    140 year old house (advice needed!)

    Just get some Cotina and Anaglypta, or push the boat out and get some Super Fresco. That’ll be fine.
