    Robbo, that is excellent stuff, used it in summer on a refurb.
  2. Would not get chance to use it as stocks of materials in so far as choices are concerned are far more limited than in the U.K. However on the upside the materials that are available mean that working with sand and cement with added lime and waterproofer (for the record) and the ability to ashlar, and form all manner of quoins and window reveals/bands etc take far more skill than the average plasterer that is thrown on to society with no more ability than to throw up a bit of plasterboard and skim it to a half decent squint eyed observed passable fashion.
    Charlie Farlie a mate of mine could not be further from the truth.

    I agree with you about decorative work and monkey spreads. I'm glad I'm not one.

    "hence the regulation washing up liquid when brickies do privates."

    Much too much information ....some things are best left unspoken.
