    Can anyone give me any prompts on this. I am particularly thinking :-
    1- Do I start at top or bottom of wall
    2- Do I roll paper up or fold over into manageable lengths
    3- Is it a 2 man job

    Thank you - John

    If your going to paper sideways it can be done by one person if you have two pair of steps and a plank to stand on for your first length starting at the top. Paste the paper on the board and fold in a concertina fashion, this makes it easier to hold and once started can be unfolded a bit at a time. If the ceiling is not straight, measure down from the highest point the width of the paper and use a long level to draw a straight line across so you can follow it. The top can be trimmed after.
