Guess your staying Spanish coast la linea? Most guys cross the border each day as cheaper, you wouldn't think they'd have much room left to build but been busy there for years.
Few years back was the new marina area is that still expanding?
Rarely go down there occasional trips to "somerfield" think the big supermkts called now ,and nice pub off Main Street about halfway up with conservatory then beer garden out back always done good fish n chips.
Used to live near Duquesa few years back few guys from there ended up in Gib when the recession hit 2008.
I was lucky had established myself well enough with clients in Soto grande , San roque club , Marbella and zagaletta so it carried me through the bad times.
I believe they were taking full advantage of the recession and screwing the guys money right down over there. Cants!!!

Capafina for little externals I do prob been over year since done any of any size.
Multi for internals from British building supplies in Elviria which is 20 min drive for me along the coast.
Sometimes use perlita but rarely find it hard work.

Need to get a good look about while over here Even if you don't fancy driving Algeciras has good rail links with all the city's and the trip up to Ronda is short built by the British for serviceman to go relax in the 1800s .
Tarifa is just along the coast little over hour beautiful place loads kite surfers and beach babes , old town tiny streets like morroco .
And speaking of which Ceuta Spanish part of morroco or for real culture shock tangier but keep yer wits about you the ports not for the feint hearted.

Hi Gee Cee,
I’m a new forum member, home owner, live in Norwich too, doing up my bathroom, just discovered tadelakt online images wow! Did you find a plasterer in the end? Was it very expensive? Are you happy with the finished result? Would you do it again? Would love to hear from you, thank you, GeeJay
