    They should compete at MW and save themselves of gruelling weight cuts.

    LW division is loophole where Khabib can do whatever he pleases.

    Dustin had his chances. As well as Conor had.

    Can anyone confirm there is no AC in the arena in Abu Dhabi ? Real feel is 47oC at the moment. Must be missinformation, as it would ruin the competition.

    Maybe Khabib doesn't hydrate well in Dubai heat and humidity, after taking weight cut.

    Round 3 ?

    khabib nurmagomedov

    Of course boxing. But Khabib's boxing may not sell many tickets or ppv. That maybe the reason Mayweather turned it down before.

    khabib nurmagomedov

    Mayweather would have to carry him through fight.

    khabib nurmagomedov

    Yea with Khabib' boxing, its a hard sell. But people may eventualy pay to see Khabib loose, if he remains unbeaten, which is a big "if" .
  11. Dacha

    khabib nurmagomedov

    If he retires unbeaten, he will look for boxing fight w Mayweather or alike.

    Wouldn't bet against Khabib's wrestling at 155 lbs division. But i've been wrong before ).

    khabib nurmagomedov

    Many people think Tony would win. He is more creative, more fun to watch. But i see Khabib just way too strong in most aspects of the game at LW division.
  14. Dacha

    khabib nurmagomedov

    He wins 2 more fights and retire. Or u mean how does he beat Dustin ? Thats my guess, as good as anyone's )
  15. Dacha

    khabib nurmagomedov

    Because they are the only two LW with walking weight above 200 lbs.
  16. Dacha

    khabib nurmagomedov

    If they ever fight... )
  17. Dacha

    khabib nurmagomedov

    Connor, Dustin, Nate and Tony will have to fight for second best. Tony is favourite.

    khabib nurmagomedov

    Easy win for Khabib. Khabib is getting older. Will retire undefeated.

    Silicone render onto sand cement render

    After applying silicone render primer.

    Silicone render over sand cement

    Usually prime it with silicone render primer.

    External render disintegrated at bottom of wall

    You really need less pearmable render. Unless you want to put new lime render every couple of years. Bagged cement render, preferably with mesh is ok, or some silicone/silicate render. There is no quick fix. Condensation should stop forming once someone lives and use heating.

    On a funny side, put another wythe of exposed bricks. Would look nice if you can work it out.

    Surrey Looking for someone to chip off and re-render(?lime) 1930s house

    You have to write a spec. People lean towards modern materials nowdays. Cork, hemp, lime renders all can be used. Some posts mentioned it before. It can be rendered different thickness. Someone has to calculate (building physics) how much thicknes to prevent cold bridge on cavity wall. 3-5cm...

    Surrey Looking for someone to chip off and re-render(?lime) 1930s house

    If looking for advice or reassurance, ok. But to get it done, ask for realistic estimate from someone like @lurpak, to see if its within your budget. Lot of good comments in previous posts though.

    Silly plumber

    Maybe was done with some very thick nap paint roller. Maybe guy helped do hardwood floor finish with that roller previously and didnt clean it, at some other house where hardwood floor specialist didn't turn up.

    Condensation

    All true. Also people occupying the space release water vapour when breathing. Fresh air ventilation is such case, reduces relative humidity, reducing chance of condensation.
  27. Dacha

    Which thermal insulation boards

    5cm for south facing wall, all other walls 8 cm insulation thickness

    Condensation

    Sometimes lack of fresh air ventilation and lack of heating create condensation.

    Sand and Cement Plastering

    @Do_It _With_Dave Once sand and cement is all nicely finished, are you going to plaster over it or brush on some limewash paint ?

    Sand and Cement Plastering

    Good insulating render with low U value is very expensive to buy and install. Couple centimeters thick. In cases where insulation cant be installed on outer side of wall.

    Sand and Cement Plastering

    Depend if you go for insulation or just a finish. Insulation will create added thermal comfort, and take a bit of room.

    Sand and Cement Plastering

    @Do_It _With_Dave Hats off for trying. By the time you apply couple of layers, hack off a couple of layers, it will become expensive and dusty. Cement/sand can be brittle, may need certain conditions while drying. Plus it takes long time to set fully. Cement/sand/lime mix is more forgiving, and...

    Insulated render - anyone used?

    Just read through this post, dont know if of any use now. I have used Diathonite evolution, one bag only. It is made of cork and clay. One house i have seen it applied externally and one flat applied it both internally and externally. It is interesting product, just equivalent to any other...

    Hello - I need advice regarding internal wall insulation

    Typically, yes. But the way you describe it, the scope of works, would require many stages, many repeat visits, where plasterer would do a few hours a day... So you are better of do it in stages, see how it goes. Presuming you can vacate that space while ongoing work.

    Hello - I need advice regarding internal wall insulation

    It would be nice to know what is your budget ? When people are booked 2 weeks or 2 months in advance, spending time to quote is also money. Someone will probably do it though. Most people will try to see it first before quoting. My guess would be that its best for you to have everything done...

    New trowel - mail order

    If you had to mail order plastering trowel, rather than hand pick it/select it and buy in person from the shop, where would you order yours, which place you think it would be lowest probability for trowel to come warped, bent or damaged ? Regardless of type and brand.
