    Best way to change a curved vaulted ceiling to a straight edged one.

    Cut it back with a multitool, re board with 15mm board which should be the same thickness as the original 12.5 and skim, tape and joint it using inverted Level line tape at the apex.

    Remove lining paper off lath and plaster walls and ceilings and re-plaster?

    That’s because you can’t see f**k all from them.

    How to newly plaster walls after ceilings have been painted..?

    Get your Mrs to hold an umbrella above your trowel as you plaster, or stop a few inches short and put a wallpaper border around. Seen some nice Buzz Lightyear ones in B&Q. (Borders, not umbrellas) Hope this helps.

    Plastering the new Bitcoin

    Read the tape, cut the board, screw it up. How hard is it?

    Can plaster dry through the mist coat.

    Depends what you used. If you used vinyl emulsion, then you will trap moisture in.

    Alternative to timber for outside building

    Mud, like in Africa, but near the shops. Not in a f**k**g desert.

    Plasterboard.

    If you mean the marks running down at 600mm, they’re suggested screwing points.

    Looks like you’ll need the glue on the studs, because a lot of your screws are in too far.

    charachters you have met over the years1

    There was a Red I****n plasterer on a site I was on in 1984. He was plastering in the winter by Tilly lamps. His work was atrocious.

    Airless spray plaster

    Pay a decent rate to the guys and there shouldn’t be a problem. It’s very labour intensive I’m my opinion getting every step spot on. I’ve sold my machine now, but was charging about £12 a metre in the end, supply and fix. Checked it all with a light to get a spot on finish.Not Knauf as I hated...

    What you done today ....

    Finished boarding a jumbo wall, then tidied up. Finished by 9am. Checked on next week’s job, then came home and cut the grass in the sweltering heat.

    Insulated plasterboard

    I bought my Hilti circular saw for a large Fermacell job. It’s cut more thermal board than it has wood. Don’t need a rail if you’ve got a steady hand. Wen you think of the time it saves, what’s £20 for a new blade?
