Today I applied the lime render to the newly-installed PVC window surround, including the upper frame which was a complete nightmare. Lime plaster is heavy. And stuffing it into a vertical space means it falls out faster than you can put it in. LSS came to the rescue, using her smaller fingers to pack it in solidly. She then patched the remaining holes in the pantry walls and repainted the non-patched bits.
We also received the quote for our two doors; the kitchen door and the front door. Are you sitting down? It was nearly €2500. I think this is another little job I’ll be doing myself.
