    Hi guys ,
    I have two plasterers due Friday to plaster a bedroom walls and ceiling, stupid question time...
    If I have a water hosepipe up through the window ( as the room is directly above my outside tap) would they 'be ok doing the mix in the room itself or have to go outside each Time they mix as its going to be dust city anyway?
    I presume outside is the answer but thought I'd ask you knowledgeable folks!
    Thanks for any replies!

    My mates a plasterer and whenever I’ve helped him knocking up when he’s been plastering for me, we just use buckets of water. He knocks up in a plastic bucket with a stirrer on an electric drill. I wouldn’t run a hose up there, let 'em bucket it in - they’re messy enough bastards anyway and I wouldn’t let 'em loose in my house with a hose!
