    Who supplys

    Oi. I saw that. Obviously I'm hard because I'm from Scotland. I can't say I'd go out of my way to come down and prove it though. That'd be a bit mad.

    Too long between coats.

    I was taught to knock the 2nd coat up through the 1st but I prefer to do a bigger set and knock up fresh.

    Too long between coats.

    Pva and start over. The second coat isn't applied to add thickness to the job, its applied so that you are applying a wet coat to a firmer one. It helps you smooth things out.

    House prices.

    Not many of those types in Scotland. We have enough of our own inbreds.

    Spores appearing after newly plastered wall

    Should use one with a little bit of dust in the bottom of it. Just make sure it goes straight in the skip and not in the mixer.

    Are you a crusty old man who lived in a Motherwell flat?

    Love good boarding to skim

    And that's slang for catholic...and that's a thing in Scotland as you know. So no, I'm not a Tim. Can we please move on?

    Love good boarding to skim

    Because those teams have sectarian leanings and we're moving on. It's just not funny any more.

    Love good boarding to skim

    What do you think a Tim is? It's really offensive stuff that crusty old men go on about in Glasgow. It's old, it's tired and it's massively out of date It's not in the least bit funny so people should give it a rest.

    Love good boarding to skim

    Must you make me be serious? The answer is that I'd need a god to be a catholic or a Protestant. My parents don't get to decide my religion, I do. Grow up. It's not 1975 any more, you know.

    Love good boarding to skim

    Why's popped paper bad? If I go a bit too deep so I feel the strength of the board is compromised, I'll just screw in next to it. Am I doing something wrong?

    Rooms with no air/ventilation

    Just open everything you can up and use a fan if you can. There's really not much else you can do is there? Unless you want to pay out a load of hard earned money on a dehumidifier. I've honestly never found it a problem though.

    Problem with plaster - bumps and blowing

    Kind of. I mostly work for one guy on a self employed basis. He makes a bit of a profit and in turn supplies me with work and any support that I might need - which isn't very much. I'm always free to do my own work or even employ him if circumstances dictate. What's that got to do with...

    Hi All

    I haven't got ten years under my belt yet but the boss used to like sending me to the people who would be the most shocked by having a wee lassie at the job.

    Hi All

    I can see that. I've also had a lot of skepicism. People being surprised that I can actually do it. I think from what I've seen just being around is going to help me soak up a lot.

    Hi All

    Central Scotland. A bit nearer to Glasgow than Edinburgh. How long do my replies need to be approved? I guess anti spam?

    Yep. That's more or less what I was thinking. It's been hard though, even getting to this point.

    Hi All

    Thanks. I currently do domestic skimming mostly. Some commercial for small builders and developers but not full on house bashing. The plan is to live cheap for the next wee while and expand the contacts I have from my weekend work. I'm at the stage now where that work would just about support...
