Default plastering the house ???

hi everyone.
now im looking for some advice for plastering my house in greece. after taking quotes from several local builders i realise that with the prices they want to charge that they will still be sitting drinking ouzo in the local taverna while i have a friend over for 2 weeks to do the work at less than 25% of the prices i was quoted.
ive got the ticket booked and all i need now is some good info on the type of materials used in greece plus the style of plastering. the work is to be done on the inside of our home on new brick walls and all the walls are interior ( not the outer walls of the house)
is the dot and dab ( plasterboard stuck to wall with special adhesive ) method used ??? or is this method not recommended because of the humidity. the next thing i have seen is what looks like a kind of plaster that is spread over the walls .
i just dont have a clue at all so any help including names of materials and the methods would be great thanks
best wishes sam

Well now, it seems to me that you are going to live with in a Greek community and possibly share all that Greece has to offer but you don’t wish to add to the economy buy paying the local builders to plaster your property, you then go on to ask HOW to do the plastering ,
You’ve got some front I’ll give you that.

seams you must be a very bored sad person to be commenting on questions from many years ago Fred. I’ve invested around 300k into Greece and funded several poor family’s to send there children for private tuition not to mention the countless amounts of money spent on stray cats and dogs. Get a life , obviously you ain’t at the moment !!

Oh and 25 new walking sticks/crutches. Approximately 100 sets of football boots, countless strips, clothing for many children. The list goes on but I can’t be bothered to add to it. Just thought I would reply so the decent people on this forum realise what sort of idiot has just became a member. Hope you get kicked out instantly. Facebook seams more your thing.
