I’m managing a small house renovation for the first time (and last as I plan to live there). It’s a very small stone cottage and was in a bad state having been empty for many years. All the lime plaster had to come off downstairs, and I’ve had two specialist lime plasterers quote. They have both said the electrician needs to chase in three cables further into the stone. The electrician says the cable covers are 20mm and that is good enough.
The lime plasterer is friends with the carpenter who says his friend will chase it out for £75. Should I pay this?
