    Hi All.

    I have the specification attached, I would appreciate it if someone can explain to me in lay mans terms what it means, so from outside, what is the composition of the upstairs wall. I can see that the outer wall needs 2 coats of sand cement, with the top coat having a water proof additive.

    Can someone please explain to me the various layers until the internal plaster board. Capture.PNG

    Is that a UK specification?

    It's funny but the holding down straps will likely stop the roof from being blown off. However what will stop the whole lot lifting off the wall?:whistle:

    A few panel pins should suffice.

    In layman's terms .... your plan drawer is sh'ite.

    Get him to detail it properly so that you can see what needs to be done.
