Who on earth would want to fuk about in someone else's house all day sheeting up and talking shite to customers. I'd rather have less money and peace of mind. I've done domestic work loads of it during the last recession pile of utter wank .
Someones gotta do it. Tbf I cherry pick my work. I get all sorts. Occasional full tac m skim houses brought by investors. Full (empty) houses no sheeting up etc.

But don’t mine putting a sheet down n banging an artex ceiling out for£300 n been home at 11am. I naturally don’t make mess so minimal cleaning

Plenty of them, some doing it for less. It's a shame because some areas have a over supply of so called plasterers and if you are good you can be affected through no fault of your own and you will not succeed, that is a fact.

Yes exactly, business is all about supply & demand, also the locality you are costing, private housing, ex council properties, too many variables to say you are too expensive or not. Prices are different all over the country. Don't understand why some people don't get it.
