Drywall + Stucco

Walls in our house is now covered. Insulation has been applied. All the interior wirings are also done. The drywalls are now installed. Drywall needs to be patched to make them even. So they are applying a layer of plaster, and let it dry. Then sand it down, and reapply another layer. Have to do this 2-3 times before the wall will appear flat. Unfortunately we are now experiencing a cold streak, hence the plaster is taking a long time to dry. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do before the walls dry. So what to do? Just wait...

Here is a picture of the first layer of stucco. Stucco is really just cement. Applied multiple layer. This is the first quite. It sticked to the wall because of the chicken wire covering the surface. If you look carefully, the cement is scraped. I think this is to create extra surface for the 2nd coat to stick better. The second coat is also applied last weekend, now it is also waiting time for that coat to dry. Again, the rainy/cold weather don't help.
