    Just to update you all on progress..

    Plumber fixed leak (mate's rate = 10!)

    Room declared Abestos free.

    Two men arrived to move furniture into garage

    Two more men arrived to replace ceiling and replaster

    One man turned up to paint room

    First two men returned to get furniture out of garage

    Another guy expected this pm to re install light fittings.

    Whole job took 4 elapsed weeks.

    Now SWMBO says we need new curtains and light shades because .the old ones don't go with the new colour scheme

    You should not paint any plaster work for at least 3 mths.

    No idea where you got that idea but suffice to say I disagree. after the plaster has dried to the touch a couple of days and rubbed down removing any high spots the plasterer has left, It needs sizing / an undercoat, Cheap emulsion mixed 1/3 paint two parts water and cut in roller like you would normally paint a wall let it dry overnight and ready to emulsion as normal the paint will not peel.

    What is more important on bare timber and many don't bother is to prevent "bleeding" knotting solution to seal should be used first, the only way around it is to use an Aluminoum oxide based primer costs a fortune so better using a knotting solution

    Many of the cowboy decorators just apply more paint which is rubbish, it will still invariably bleed unles treated first

    Trev's still harking back to the days when they left a new house for 6 months to dry out before letting anyone live in it. Old habits die hard over the water, but 100 years is a long time.

    Why don't we go back to using proper sheep wool?

    Got lots of the little b*gg*rs roaming around and Britain's ancient wealth was built on wool at one time.
    Fleeces are worth twopence ha'penny these days.

    There are outfits doing sheep wool insulation etc. out there. I guess maybe it's the logistics and cost of production that might not make it particularly feasible when matched against the new man made materials.

    If it's the only scale of production that limits more widespread use, maybe we should just try a bit harder to come up with more sustainable alternatives like this when they're already right under our noses? Why do we always have to go for 'man made' when the natural world has some pretty good materials already?

    Well there you go, a side line in moth balls? Two industries for the price of one!
