He can do a bit so he did the boarding but it would be unfair to send him up the 'chimney' and leave a poor finish. He's a plumber with his own firm, too busy making money to pay for the building works!!Time he learnt to plaster himself or make it out of something self finished.
Customer "hi I'm looking for my hall and stairs to be skimmed"old victorian ones aren’t too bad with a wider stairwell. but higher.....council and new builds can be congested.
i’m 47 and I think it’s easy
Lol, I done one of them, it was like climbing skywards in a tunnel, when plaster was on, and board wet, the ladder went through the board, and i literally s**t myself..ha haI finished one for my son recently. He built a light shaft to the roof 700mm square so effectively you were working in a tube. The scaffolding consisted of caber flooring screwed to CLS timbers sitting on the landing rails and a ladder the other end. On top of that was a telescopic ladder taking me skywards. Once you were in the 'capsule', there was no room to swing a trowel and roasting hot. Shitting myself and sweating buckets in equal measures. Unpaid of course, the things we do for family. All at nearly sixty.
I use the canvas staircase dust sheet from Screwfix. Nothing goes through it and it fits perfectly. Check it out.If you do a HSL and use dust sheets instead of carpet protector. You're a special type of c**t. Price in a roll or 2 and allow an hour to put it down. f**k dust sheets up and down everyday or customer tripping down the stairs.
Mrs jones or any other person should not be in area you are working in.its deemed a building site,they go to bathroom or any other room its their risk,i know it happens all the time but i tell them unadvisable, most dont care and trip.i say you better off going out come back later,,,most just give you a look.lolUntil mrs Jones trips on it and her face goes through it
of course dear ,no problem at all, all you have to do is ask, as you take apart part of the scaffold so they can get by, then you say mind you dont bump your head which they usually do, then you have to wait untill they come out the toilet ,all the time your handboard of skim which you were just about to put on is going off, then they come out and usually bang there head again, oh dear are you okay you ask try to show some concern at this point, sorry to bother you again they say no probs, then she says little johnny wants to go now just as you have put the scaffold back up and you are up there,...but no probs because little johnny can squeeze under she says, oh goodo but little johnny gets a soaking from you as he comes back down just as you are washing your handboard and trowel,Sorry to be a pest but can I get to the toilet?
