It's an indication just how shite the prices are when the site lads need to be bursting out these kinds of metres day in day out for a decent wage.

I don't doubt there are top plasterers out there that don't know any different but you shouldn't need to work that hard to put food on your table IMO.
Getting back to op that's why I asked how much they do now.

I did half a room with 1 coat and the other half with 2 coats the other day. U can't tell the difference. Just because u seen 1 coat plastering done s**t doesn't mean it can't be done right. I've seen plenty of s**t 2 coat work
Did it all look rough as fk?

I certainly believe a good spread can make one coating a good job
However I find I get more ground covered two coating, and it's easier too.
I do average 70 to 90 a day depending on the house.
9 bags.

Never seen a one coat "specialist " leave a good job, ever. Doesn't mean they don't exist but in 14 years and having met loads of plasterers in various gangs I've never met anyone that leaves a nice job one coating.

Love half bag Fridays, although thought I'd be on the settee by now but a couple of inconsiderate customers are needing some jobs priced. One even had the audacity to text me!

Would love to go to gym at that time but up that time, breakfast and make sure I take a s**t before leave the house. I drink this high fiber stuff (lepicol) and if I leave the house without shitting, I'll be doing it in a field lol. Great turds thou with this stuff lol. Leave house at 6 and on site for between 7.30-8.00. 1.30 hours away working and hit roadworks too :(

Nothing worse than busting for a s**t before work, and especially if you got a domestic job on and first thing you do is smash the toilet.

My alarm goes off at 6.30 and most days it's a struggle. At the weekend I'm awake and bright as a button about 5.30! Unless I'm hungover then I'm rolling about with the fear all morning
