well awarding you the title of gob on a stick, and also boy with a mans heed, not often i agree with kinky boy, in fact this is first time , but please do put some photos up, just wish i was there tomorrow watching you skimming ,.......in fact hold off for a few days give us all a chance to come down and watch you give a master classSooo i pretty much just ignored all your advice and have decided to have at it myself. Knocked off what I could, have just bonded it and will start the skim tomorrow.
The reason I don't want to pay someone is because plasterers charge the earth. Obviously I couldn't fit a boiler or rewire a house myself, but plastering looks easyyy. Most plasterers were thick af in school. Not forking out a tonne of money to a peasant who struggled with his BTECs.
