It looks like some form of sinkback, ie the plaster on the joins has shrunk.
Surely they could strip the paint back and re-do the joins with more plaster? I’m…

It’s gone really quick, which is great, however we’re taking it not fully complete, which probably makes up a bit of time.

The colours go well with the roof. Once they do the ground floor roof, you’ll have a better idea.

It’s been great. They’ve been really good to deal with and happy to fix up anything I’ve noticed might be incorrect.
We’re keen to get into it as soon as…

We have quite tall ceilings (34 course which is about 2950) so you don’t really notice it unless you look closely. Probably could have done without now that we’ve done…
