Interior decorator


Explanation:
Bricklayer passt m.E. eher nicht, da verputzen und Trockenbau ja plastering und dry walling sind.

plasterer/mason


Explanation:
Might work here.

Plasterer/stucco mason
http://www.collegegrad.com/careers/const17.shtml

Plasterers are skilled craft workers who finish the interior surfaces of homes and buildings with plaster coating to strengthen, soundproof, insulate, and fireproof them. On the outside of buildings, they use cement plasters or stucco because these materials are strong and weatherproof. Plasterers who cast decorative molding, cornices, and paneling are called ornamental plasterers.
Plasterers work with carpenters, bricklayers, lathers, painters, and other craft workers. The carpenters build the frame of the building. Then lathers install the lath, a backing of wire mesh or gypsum board to which plaster sticks.

agree  David Williams: Sounds about right! (Even though mason on its own would be way off the mark...)
2 mins
  -> Yes, I think the / leaves it suitably vague.

agree  Ingeborg Gowans: better solution
1 hr

agree  Andrew D: according to the Arbeitsamt the mason is the equivalent job description. => http://berufenet.arbeitsamt.de/berufe/docroot/r1/blobs/pdf/a...

indeed a term specifically used in the former DDR ' apparently replaced with "Maurer" even though it doesn't seem to cover the entire scope of skills required. for that particular job description
