I need a general builder and a plasterer that take on small jobs and hoping you all might have some recommendations please.

If it helps, the details are:

  • For the builder, cut a french drain in an existing patio, take some steps down and put them back up (but with a damp proof membrane)
  • For the plasterer someone who knows how to use lime plaster

Thank you!

  • Fiona, please let us know if you find a plasterer who knows how to use lime plaster. We needed one a few years ago, and the builder who was working for us claimed to know but didn't, so we had liquid plaster dripping all over the floor (it's a very different technique!). A sustainability expert who did know bailed us out, but now he's moved on to making films or teaching French or something. We wanted it so that the walls would be breathable - is that why you want to use it?

    • Will do (no success so far but haven't been looking very hard).
