I take it that doesn’t include those that pointed out the very dangerous & potentially illegal electrical install you’ve got there then ; but I suppose if you didn’t do it, it makes it OK to just leave it as is & cover it all up againP.S. -> i would like to especially thank the members who helped me with some of that
no i dont think its OK but when you do NOT have the money to pay for a sparkie what do you do? and i mean we do NOT have any money so we cant get one in - tell it to the missus mate - its her house and she (nor I) has got the money to pay a sparkie to come in and tell us the whole house needs a re-wire...
thought i explained that already?
the last sparkie we rang up to give us a price for the alarm unit just came in and ripped the front off and done the work and charged us £100 - when we just wanted a price...
ive told her everything ive been told - what more can I do if she cant afford it?
I fixed it up as i think it was you told me about the cabling not allowed to be diaganol, i removed the cooker cable out of the double socket and is now on a cooker switch down to cooker wire plate - the chased in junction box I removed, and removed the cardboard and put in steel trunking over ALL of the wiring - so now you just have wiring up/down/left or right of the sockets all fixed in with steel trunking - all sockets on a ring main instead of wires running all over and cooker feeding one double socket - so i havent just "LEAVE IT AS IT IS" and cover it over
so please, no replys like that as if to imply im just 'ignorant' when im not
fair enough just so you know i always 2 coat in my mind 1 coat is half a job and it doesnt take me any longer really still be able to skim that room in a day, but you have gone the down the route that makes you happy so good luck and hope everything goes to plan
Ive heard someone else mention double-coating but ive laboured for 3 plasterers in the past and ive ever seen the finish plaster laid on twice before? - maybe on an uneven dodgy surface but not seen it done, I will be watching this plasterer and if this one no.4 ive seen plaster doesnt do it then what does that say? - all 4 of these plasterers are doing it wrong?
