    1. Is this wall suitable for wet plastering (with expamet added over the interfaces between different elements). I mean, it's got a window blocked up and the space where meters were blocked up too, under a lintel?

    I was thinking of putting a skim bead on at damp course level and leaving the 3 lower brick courses bare with a couple of coats of Silka Rapid DPM, they'll be lost behind skirting.

    Does this sound reasonable?

    Thanks

    you wont want to use a finish plaster straight on that, will need a first coat (undercoat carlite / thistle) of plaster then a finish. Make sure you wet the wall first as that will supp all the moisture out and dry to quickly
