First Coat of Plaster -Staging Everywhere

They Wear Stilts to Reach the Ceiling

Plastering Over the Screws and Joints

They Used Staging to Reach the Cathedral Ceiling

Dining Room

About ten plasters showed up and immediately went to work laying paper over the rough subfloor. Having the paper over the floor made clean up incredibly easier. With all of the plaster that is dropped during the plastering, they would have had to spend hours scraping the floor. Instead they only had to roll it up and throw it all in the dumpster. They even covered the doors to protect them which I thought was a great idea.

They put the first coat on by covering the screws and the joints that had mesh type put over them. They wore stilts to make it easier to work on the ceiling instead of having to move the step ladder around. In the Living room they set up staging to reach the cathedral ceiling.

The next step will be to do a second coat known as a skim coat completely over all the walls and ceilings. This will give them all a smooth coat.

You know, it’s really starting to look like a real house.

Enjoy your week.
