Hi everyone, I have just bought my first flat and it needs a bit of doing up and I'm just after a bit of advice. I'm starting with the bedroom. Walls and ceilings are stripped and I've found a plasterer who will skim it all to give it a good finish so I can paint directly onto the walls.
It's got carpet at the moment so I'm tearing that up to expose the floorboards.
Couple of questions: 1) Should I sand the floorboards first or would it be ok to plaster first, then sand? 2) Should I remove the skirting boards to then put them back on afterwards? Or can the plastering and floor sanding be done with the skirting on?
