Onwards and upwards
Still recoving and doing repair work to existing plaster we worked off scaff tower today to tackle a rather high and awkward ceiling. As an anybody working on old houses knows, a straight line or level ceiling is a rare creature and so shaping, carving and bending of the 10ft plaster lengths was the order of the day. Fitting the coving whilst still green(fresh and damp) makes the job easier (liberal applications of water helps) but even so the language today was rather salty shall we say! Tomorrow its up the ladder to take some impressions of damaged mouldings to make up missing bits, a fiddly job but one I find rather satisfying.
