Since my ongoing re-wire was always going to take forever, I decided to
cut access holes in the downstairs ceilings rather than lifting the
upstairs floorboards. Now I've finally got round to making good the
damage in the lounge. The ceiling is plasterboard with a flat skim and
there are 30off 200mm circular holes to make good. I still have all the
plugs, so I'll be putting them back by screwing them to battens
gripfilled across the holes.
Any suggestions as to what to do after that? I was going to roughly fill
round them and then get the ceiling skimmed (I wouldn't attempt to skim
the ceiling myself). Now though, I'm wondering if it would be less
hassle to fill each one properly and dispense with the skim...
