Plastering Question

Removing two chimney breasts and then plastering to give smooth wall space

We live in a small terrace house where space is limited. We would like to remove the chimney breast in the front room, and also in the front room on the first floor. Having removed them, is it possible to plaster over the walls to give a good, smooth finish?

Yes. You will have a bit of making good to the brickwork - filling in where bricks are damaged. I would then use bonding to cover the bricks, this is the base coat. When dry, it can then be plastered. You may have a bit of patching up on the ceiling and a bit of skirting to match what you have. Bit of a messy job so carpets up and rooms cleared. Make sure what chimney is left higher up is supported.
