 Work carried out in Homanton, 2014 by Nick Buxcey of Paint and Lime.

Lime Stuff supplied:

COARSE STUFF HAIRED

MEDIUM STUFF

FINE STUFF TOP COAT

 

 

 

The sitting room wall had blown and was in serious need of repair. When the wallpaper was removed part of the wall collapsed and needed rebuilding. Using lime mortar and flint the wall to the right of the chimney was rebuilt over a period of time. The wall was then replastered in lime and allowed to dry.

This shot shows the damage to the internal wall which had suffered a partial collaspe.  The crack next to the chimney was nearly 8 inches deep and was repaired using our lime plaster over a period of a few days, allowing it to dry out.

After the repairs, a mixture of lime (NHL2) and WAREHAM WASHED SAND was applied to help to stabilise the loose cobb.

A haired coat of COARSE STUFF was plastered to the wall, smoothing out the undulating parts of the wall.
