    Me too. I've been putting this job off for a while. It's a big place, took 4 man weeks to hammer drill the pebbledash off. Crazy mess, and noise. We had to hire a bigger breaker as the original was just bouncing off the stiff sand\cement basecoat.

    Nightmare.

    Yeah well played that looks super, any pictures of it all finished from a distance?

    Features like that strike me a bit like original fire places in houses in the 70's, at the moment they seem to be neither in or out of fashion so people are getting rid but i think give it another 30 years and people will be kicking themselves for getting rid of original features like that.

    Also our house is K rend and i really love the finish it gives.

    That looks awesome! I actually really liked the look with the plugs on show as well before they were trimmed flush.
