    i grew up plastering with donny men.
    animals absolute animals.
    mixing 20 ton of sand and cement a day to 2 of them 2 labs was the norm.
    22 bags of skim a gauge on plasterboard between 4 men...2 labs.
    40 bags hardwall before 12 then skim 2 of us daily.
    the rendering gangs put there hands to anything any weather....looking back i was lucky to serve my time with these men.

    they taught me how to make money !!

    1st hit this morning approx 60m on my tod.
    biggish house...
    would of been skimmed in a day with a few more of the donny men ;)

    £1600 5.5 days on shite rates. :(

    octagon homes
    jurys in hotels
    golf hotels etc

    huge developments in and around london the older generation of dony men were top spreads.
