    One word RESPECT (to all you processionals) I started the job today and what a nightmare. after a day faffing about i seem to have a method that works. my first problems started with probably the wrong mix but after trial and error I believe I have it. Building my own house i have done plenty of different types of work from building walls, tiling and underfloor heating but I will say this little job seemed to be the trickiest to date.
    You may laugh at the caulk but that was the advice I was given ze Germans and Poles seem to use it to. I have used it before but the shrinkage makes it a nightmare for decent finishes so did not want to use it here.
    I would have posted pictures of my results so far but you would only take the PI** so I havent.
    ah well see what tomorrow brings, me thinks expert by the end of the week (year). Oh and I have never done building work before or am I in the trade. just wanted to do it once and see how it goes.
