Uni DIY Projects

Hello I recently began University and became a supervisor over student workers. We have a list of task we must complete and follow up on. One such task is covering up this hole in the wall. How would we go about closing this up? I appreciate any help given.

    Cardboard, duct tape, plaster, paint. Make the cardboard structurally sound.
    You need a brush and a scraper too. A sponge to texture paint if necessary.

    Put a cupboard door. A door is absolutely essential. If you close that hole with plaster/whatever, you're a moron because you haven't assessed the situation. Why is their a hole in the first place ? Because obviously a moron thought it was ok to put that surely essential valve/junction/thing behind a solid wall then some dign human bloke figured out where that valve was and broke the wall to access it. You don't want to be the moron the next dign human bloke needing to access the valve will curse upon breaking that damn wall for a second time. Because you're better than that anon.

      Bet we spoke and agreed the cupboard idea would be the best solution. Seeing how the wall is setup though would the hinge

      Just cut a piece of matching plywood and slap it on with a piano hinge

      work best or would I have to make a addon to it?

      Agreed, I'm so tired of these top-hatted capitalists and trust-fund babies coming here from Ebaumsworld and mocking our humble rural ways with their fancy words and velvet breeches. If OP wants to learn DIY, he'll learn the way we all did, by spending 10 years here as an apprenctice, shitposting about shipping containers, imitation crab meat, 500ft deep holes, dock construction/invoicing, and homemade diving bells made from soda cans and JB Weld.

      Then he'll graduate to Journeyman, the CONSOOMER stage, where he'll spend another ten years acquiring a $30,000 Snap-on tool chest full of $10,000 of perfectly matching color-coordinated power tools, pristine and unused, after the Sorting Hat decides whether he belongs to Milwaukee, Makita, or Ryobi House.

      Only then, finally at long last he will achieve the rank of Master after completing his first actual DIY repair, which could be something as simple as spraying WD-40 into a squeaky cabinet hinge, using a piece of cardboard to level a wobbly table, or--if he's REALLY good--assemble an Ikea end-table with one of those wonky little wrenches.

      This is the way.

    If you're the supervisor then tell the other students to do it

    That's a two freshmen job, three depending on how hard you manage to stuff them in with your boot.
    Then just plaster over whilst ignoring their whines for help.

          the hinges are on the bottom. no matter how you rotate the pic the hinges are still facing the floor meaning it would open down instead of to the left like it should according to the knob on the door. you are a fucking retard

    Ok - Can I ask why this is your task? Do you possess any skills/knowledge in this area?
    (is it tangentally related to your field of study?)

    Wouldn't your insititution have a groundworks/maintaince team?

    If you're lacking in equpiment I'd consider finding a picure frame, that way the hole would be squared up, and you'd have a bit of a lip for fixings
