Yes that topic again.
This house is full of it they even managed to coat a wall with it, however the builders are removing that wall and a couple of others.
That job is beyond my skill level.
However the options on the ceilings are either to have a plasterer come in and re plaster the ceilings or have the builders line the ceilings with plaster board or try and remove the artex with that solution you paint on and scrape off.
I perfer the first two options.
Many years ago I scraped an artex coating off a ceiling with a pro scraper attached to a hoover and then applied a thick wallpaper to the ceiling.
Is there any other options I could consider that would save money.

Best option is probably to overboard and skim or knock off the high spots and plaster over.

Wouldn't go down the stripping route personally, although it is a fairly safe method of removing artex that may contain white asbestos (chrysotile) in a minor form.
