It's quite strange, There are only two rooms in the house...where the original owners have totally stripped the wallpaper, plastered and painted. All done really well. One of the rooms is the Zazas bedroom.

But....For some reason, it seems they have gone back and removed a whole wall of gib - maybe there was a leak? Not sure, but the gib has been completely removed and the wall was literally the inside of the houses big old weatherboards.

Today, I had the wall regibbed, and plastered.

We've plastered and stuff before, but I don't remember it ever being so chemically smelling.

maybe they were gunna put insulation in the wall?  eek

drying time will depend on humidity etc. let the fresh air in and that will help.

I will ensure that the truth is told

But Don't put any paint on it for a week, even if it looks dry, but you can sand with in that time. Oil base pigmented sealer is best for the first coat, I tryed to cheat & sealed area on the ceiling where they patched I sealed it with a water base paint for sealing gib & the stuff didn't stick too well .

After reading your post the other day JJ...it made me think

And it was smelling chemically in there, before he went out to the truck to get the bucket of plaster.

It's fine now...and Zazas all settled back in

Could be Dab...interestingly enough, I just had someone in the roof who said that that end of the house (where the bedrooms are) was not insulated but the living area is.

But Don't put any paint on it for a week, even if it looks dry, but you can sand with in that time.

Thanks for that Pb...that's the next step after the next coat of plaster and apparently a bit of 'no more gaps' is added.

Luckily I found in one of the cupboards, the paint they have used for the other walls. It's a great colour so rather than totally repainting and having the expense of a new tub of pain...I can just do the one wall with what's left over.
