Plastering Question

One for the old boys really...


Who used to fit the laths, for lath and plaster? Was it the plasterer or a chippy etc? Often think it must of been a mind numbing job...

Thank you

Hi Hampshire, your going back a few years now, when I started early 70s it was still carried out.
I was working as a cotswold stone roof tiler, and this was a job we done with the plasterers.
The laths came in big bundles, it depended a lot on how busy each trade was, the chippies did muck in as well.

The good old days, and now were ripping those ceilings down cursing the guys who put them up.
