We put the final touches on the taping in the Stube, finish installing the baseboards, and generally getting ready to start plastering, which will happen tomorrow. I picked some smaller sections, so we can slowly ease into it (also to get a routine in E! mixing the plaster while I apply it; so far I had done all that myself, but it is faster and less stressful with two people).
As the ceiling is too large for one person, unless you want to work like a dog for a whole day straight, we hired Jack to help us out. If things go well, we'll have him over more often to help us with the rest of the plastering.
