No, when I stripped the walls prior to the new kitchen going in, half the plaster came off. The plasterer said it was because PVA on the walls, if you use a steam stripper, blows the old plaster off. he said he gets a lot of work that way. £600 bill later, I am using a standard white paint, watered down a bit for the roller. it has soaked up the first two lots of paint. A bit more to go on tomorrow.
I did spend a week camping style.. no electric in the kitchen,microwave and kettle in the living room. I always had a bed to go to at night. I couldn't go without a bed for four years.
