Re: Plastering a wall ...... question.

Thank you everyone for your comments.
Yes, it`s a house, owner renovation. (Owner is a carpenter (Schreiner) so he has no idea of anything to do with cement).

The Schreiner owner has filled in gaps with cement where he cut off the old walls, and this now needs to be plastered to fit in with the rest of the walls.

We had both the young guy and the older guy here last night - and they conversed over the variations, and have come to the conclusion they`ll both work on it, doing just the cut-off wall sections and extending to the nearest corners, and they`ll do the new ceiling too. Seems we`re stuck with the rough walls to match the other walls.

And we`ll then paint all the walls - ourselves, later.

They`ll both do the plastering work - in exchange for being supplied with beer and würst at end of the workday.

Oh something interesting about those bumpy walls - Seems it`s done in houses built with wooden framework (old houses) so plaster doesn`t crack with movement of structure - it`s stronger. (Yet I`ve seen it in modern apartments too! )

Whovever invented the bumpy walls obviously has never had to try and dust cobwebs off them! Or carry laundry baskets up and down stairs - scraping knuckle skin onto walls.
