2006-Feb-4 - Our Place - Silly Tony falls through ceiling while installing insulation
To install insulation at the edge of the ceiling I needed to remove some of the metal sheeting from the roof to install from above.
While walking around on the roof timbers I slipped and put my foot through the ceiling plaster.
Much swearing and embarrasment followed.
I patched up the ceiling within a couple of days - but it caused me to learn all sorts of plastering skills much earlier than I anticipated. Also I had to devote 20 hours to the repair job that could have been used for installing insulation.
The good news is that I had to buy stud glue that came in handy while propping up some of the sagging ceiling areas.

the Damage !
