It was rather clever how he filled the hole in the living room. I thought we would have to open the hole bigger, but he didn't have to.
|This is the before picture|
|He screwed in a long vertical board into the back of the remaining lath and drywall to provide structure then he installed some more horizontal lath boards|
|He put in a wire mesh over the top|
|Close up of the wire mesh. The blue stuff around the opening is bonding agent (glue)|
|He filled the opening with plaster|
|Let dry overnight|
|Then finish coat it with a finer material (I didn't ask what it was)|
|All done. Once it dries for a few days, I can repaint.|
Oh, and this was just delivered......
