    No swearing on this job

    The large unit is 4 bed. Only problem for me would be that you can’t see out of any windows as they are so high. I would’ve had a mezzanine in the bedrooms to see out of the velux windows. That one is about £400k. The upstairs apartment (2 bed is the only one with a view. That one is about...

    Splayed angles

    just watched the Habito corner video. It’s the same stuff. Used to be caller Gyproc No-Coat. Was hellish expensive £30-40 a box. Looks like Gyproc have rebranded it. Level line is slightly narrower. Still dear enough.

    FFP3 masks

    The local shipyard have donated a number of these FFP3 masks to the care home that my partner manages. They aren’t suitable for the staff to use as they aren’t surgical. If any of you would like a couple, pm me your details and I’ll post them to you. Ideal when sanding and mixing.

    LED Coving

    It will highlights every slight discrepancy in the plaster . Finish needs to be blemish free or it’ll look shite

    dry lining corner tape

    Yes, and tape on beads as discussed in the other thread.

    Plasterboarding for first time

    Yes, that’s all I use. It doesn’t flare much on the external. When you ask for G-Tec tape on beads, you get Beadex branded beads. They are about £97 a box. 50x 2.4

    Plasterboarding for first time

    You could just use the finish jointing compound. Bed the tape with it, fill out the taper, then give two more coats, going wider each time. Thin coat beads will need to be filled out with joint filler. Tape on beads can be coated up with the finish. Minsters keep the tape on beads. Called G -tec...

    Plasterboarding for first time

    The jointing system is the same as normal, but using their own finish. Fibafuse tape is foolproof. Get a roll of that from Belmore supplies. Flex tape is utter s**t. Use thin coat beads or tape on beads. Suggest a minimum 180 grit paper for sanding too.

    Competition Time!!!

    Plasterboarding for first time

    I suggest you form a box behind the ceiling speaker if you’re concerned an out sound transfer. The ceiling board could be 100mm soundbloc but if there’s a hole in it for a speaker, kind of defeats the object.

    We are only interested in soft engineering here. You know, making models out of poo. You should see the model of Tower Bridge I made from dog turds. It’s accurate, apart from the white castellations at the top.,

    Small budget, big plans...

    Yeah. Just clean the bricks up and varnish them. Any really bad areas can be enhanced with flying ducks and large ‘Love Life Laugh’ words. I’d be inclined to get some ‘f**k This s**t’ words made up.

    Bubble on joints of boards. Airless plaster

    Just started a site of 20 timber frames. Builder has his own builders merchants and supplies Siniat 15mm board. It’s a dream to cut and fix.

    Bubble on joints of boards. Airless plaster

    Knauf boards have been horrendous of late. Some have been 10mm out of square along the butt edge. Also lots of paper delaminating on both the front and back of the boards, and to top it off, crumbly gypsum. Absolute shite.

    Ceiling fell down...

    Not enough screws. Should be 7 across the board width. Also, maybe the screws you did put in were put on too far so they didn’t hold.

    Airlessco sl1250??

    It’s the size of the spray tip in thousandths of an inch. Typically, you’d use a 517 for emulsion as it’s finer. The 5 is the fan size, and the 17 the size of the opening.
