Plastering

In the last week the plasterers have been on the job. Two very good tradesmen working at mates rates. As the house is not your run-of-the-mill job, I told the plasterers to have a good look on site before pricing the work. They saw the nature of the work involved and proceeded with no qualms. However, I have since been told that there has been a fair bit of swearing going on up in the attic......tricky angles apparently.

The plasterboard sheets were delivered and stored in the garage.


The ceiling battens & ceiling lining went up on the first day.

Walls awaiting the plasterboard.

Plasterer busy at work. Both of the plasterers appeared on an episode of 'The New Inventors' last year. They now charge extra for having their photos taken.


We sound-insulated selected internal walls.


The ground floor plaster has been stopped up and only needs the cornice to finish off.


It's a messy job.


This is the entry foyer showcasing some of the angles that were the cause of much profanity. That's the designer up there completely oblivious to the mayhem he caused.


This is the room over the garage.


....and so is this.


...and again.
The house is coming along nicely. Once the stopping up and the cornices are complete the ceilings will be painted and the walls given the first coat of paint. After that we have about 550 metres of skirtings and architraves to install.
All for now.

  2. All good buildings require the appropriate blessings, and yours is getting the best kind - the blessing of the common man (tradey).
    Looks fantastic too.

    Hey, we are meeting with American Homes today for our initial 'chat' - wish us luck!

  4. Plastering is a process used to produce an acceptable final wall or ceiling finish to a building prior to decoration. That is true. Awfully nice article. You share a fortune of information in this piece of writing. Thanks
