Afternoon,Can anyone help me? The property I have bought has masonry walls, which I want to plaster with lime. I have zero experience in lime and plastering. Would anyone know of a practical course on lime, and how to plaster? I have found a number of courses for the UK but I would really like to find one in Ireland. Do they exist in Ireland? Thanks See MoreSee Less

Morning,I have a question regarding renovation insurance. I started to renovate the property I bought end of April but I don’t have any insurance. I have tried to get insurance but no luck. The reason why? The property I have is part residential and part commercial, so the insurances are hesitant to insure. So, for the moment I am doing everything I can on my own. But there will come a time when I will need trades men/women on site. What do I do? How do I get insurance? See MoreSee Less
