Hi Jon,

yes the sequence of events is key.

Now if as Petrie suggest , the red and black lines were drawn at the quarry, and the plaster was also applied at the quarry , and maybe the plaster was applied to give the lines some definition , who knows, but if that is the case then it kinda dents my theory that the cartouche was applied in situ, as my suggestion was that the plaster was applied after the beams were installed , and they only got their plastering by the same guy who filled in the cracks.

We could go round and round in circles here until a sound logical interpretation of the sequence can be formulated , if ever lol.

Here is a more of what Petrie says about this Plastering.

63. In the first chamber the S. wall has fallen outwards, dragging past some of the roof–beams, and breaking other beams at the S.E. corner. The E. and W. end walls have sunk, carrying down with them the plaster which had been daubed into the top angle, and which cracked freely off the granite roofing. On the E. end one block is dressed flat, but all the others are rough quarried.

In the second chamber are some bosses on the N. and S. wall stones; and several of the stones of the N. wall are smoothed, and one polished like those in the King's Chamber, seeming as if some spare blocks had been used up here. The S.E. corner shows cracks in the roof .52 wide. The masons' lines, drawn in red and black, are very remarkable in this and the upper chambers, as they show, to some extent, the methods of working. Some of the lines in this chamber, drawn in red on the S. wall blocks of granite, are over some of the plastering, but under other parts of the plaster. These lines, therefore, were drawn during the building, and while the plaster was being laid on, and slopped like whitewash into the joints. The red lines are always ill–defined and broad, about ¼ to 1½ inch; but, to give better definition, finer black lines were often used, either over the red or alone, about 1/10 inch wide. On the S. wall, starting from a drafted edge on the W. wall, 4 inches wide, there is a vertical mason's– line at 22.3, a very bad joint at 51.5, another line at 70.5, another at 435.8, and the E. wall at 471.8. Thus the two end lines are 413.5 apart, evidently intended for the length of the King's Chamber below them, and define the required limits of this upper space. On the E. wall is a vertical mid–line drawn, with a cross line and some signs; from this mid–line to a line at the S. end is 101.8, and to a line at the N. end of the wall is 102.85; total, 204.65, intended for King's Chamber width. There is a large cartouche of Khnumu–Khufu, nearly all broken away by Vyse's forced entrance; but this and other hieroglyphs need not be noticed here, as they have been already published, while the details of the masons' marks and lines of measurement have been neglected.

PS
Note Petrie says, the whitewash was slopped into the joints, doesn't that imply they put the whitewash on after they had positioned the beams, ?
