You'd be better renting a flat and share it with another plasterer maybe if you think long term, premier Inn is usually £35 a night.

Tbh i dont know, just weighing up ideas in me head atm,which is a smidgen scrambled. If money was to be right, and could get digs cheap enough, cohld he tempted by a few weeks away, but dont know if id go through with it.lol london doesnt interest me, somerset was nice, dont know how much work round it. South coast could be alright, or north west maybe, have some far out family northwest. Just tryin to weigh up options bud.

He the block works shocking, we’ve had to go day rate with them as can’t do the float and set on a price. But they’re switching to board and skim so should get better. Want to come back down?:)

I’ve got work lined up now but if anything changes I’ll be in touch

I went on the other one so I could get the hang of the ritmo (just bought it) but when they offered only 50p extra for putting an extra 30mm of hardwall on we just laughed

I should think you did laugh!
Blockwork should have been condemned, you just shouldn't be putting 40mm of Hardwall on regardless of price.
