Some of the walls in my home seem to have been base plastered....brown
crumbly stuff.....I know just a little as my brother is a builder but spends
most of his time contracting away. I have watched him plastering and have
learned just a few things on materials, techniques etc...
I feel silly in asking but i will just the same!
Could I use timber batons/plaster off cuts directly onto a wall and dry line
using plaster boards then finnish with plaster?
You could, but that might mean moving the skirting boards, door and window
architraves, and electric sockets. I think the easiest option would be to
skim the walls with one coat or finish plaster if the base coat is up to it.
Can you ask a plasterer to advise you? Or, if your brother has seen these
walls and is contactable by phone, can you ask him if dry lining is the way
