    I have a house that is covered in woodchip and have now got round to stripping it all off and it is back to the old plaster. It's edwardian house circa 1910. In the main the plaster is not blown however it has been filled in many places and not sanded down, presumably because the woodchip was just pasted over the top.

    My friend is suggesting that I can probably get away with 2000 grade lining paper and then emulsion, however I am wondering whether it is better to go for a full plaster re-skim?

    1960s ex council house and the front room walls were filled as much as yours although had been sanded back but still had emulsion on in places, gave it a couple of coats of diluted matt emulsion as it was bare plaster mostly and sized the wall and put 1800 lining paper up and never looked back, dont forget you can use a bit of mix yourself powder filler to fill any gaps between drops and then gently sand back.
