Hi. I’m building a single storey flat roof extension up to my boundary line. My neighbour has a upvc conservatory on his side, also up to the boundary line. There will be about 30cm between the two walls. I’m building in blockwork and am wondering how to finish the blockwork in the gap. The rest of the wall will be rendered, but is there a way of rendering in such a narrow gap?

Any other ideas of how I can finish this side of the extension?

Appreciate any advice you can give me.

Perhaps render it as it goes up? Lay two course of blocks and lean over and render before the next two courses. It'd be a pain but should be possible although it will slow up the build a bit. You may just find a thinish plasterer to get in between the two walls but expect the job to take longer. I've squeezed between such a gap before , last time being to fix guttering . Doable but a pain , for instance turning round was impossible and it was awkward to get tools such as a drill at 90 degrees to the wall.
