Said it before on here and got ripped. But after its been laid in with 2nd coat it gets 2 trowels. As simple as that. I think the reason might be I trowel up abit later than most. So when you guys are giving it 5th polish I'm giving it 2nd trowel and it looks same as the skim is at same setting stage. No water on either trowel. All done very neat.
I've seen your work meself mate + its spot on, didnt realise you only trowel it twice though. To be fair i give it 3 but the 3rd ones just a shine for the customer cos they associate shiny with good work, each to their own though as long as it looks well when its painted, seen some giving it 5-6 trowels + its just pointless!!! Hows your back these days mate?

These guys can't grasp that I know what I'm doing mate, they think I'm a rough arse lol .... to be fair that job did have a 3rd going over as she was a pain in the arse. Backs been fine, just got a serious case of tennis elbow, couldn't lift a cup of tea without spilling it the other week. How's things man?

The general public would think were fuucking mad on talking about walls haha
My good god we all love walls is this normal ??
 
Not a bad idea, domestic is bit more slow paced if you can get the coin in.

Why would anyone want site work over domestic is beyond me.

Dick head site agents to worry about checking times waiting for wages being f**k*d around.

Domestic you answer to customer odd one is a dick but your only there short time.
Cash on completion.

Can leave when like.
And make a s**t load more for same mix.
If you have enough contacts domestic is the way forward In my opinion.
