Traditional Internal Lime Plastering

This can be executed in a variety of finishes of smooth to slightly textured/rustic to suit different period properties and preferences. It is usually done using finest extra matured lime putty, fibres and graded porous aggregates (not sand) to aid pulling damp out of the the wall. Remodelling and reshaping of the walls prior to plastering is also possible as shown below. All base layers would normally be done with porous handmade plaster or cob (not readimixed 'lime' plasters or sand/cement as they will not aid the correct regulation of damp to cope with seasonal changes to dry in the summer and then retain moisture in the winter. This attention to detail will ensure the walls suck condensation in to the plaster to create a healthy traditional dry atmosphere to live in. It takes longer to do than modern plasters or premixed 'lime plaster' but the results are worth it and noticeable according to my clients.

Clenche Farmhouse

This is an old farmhouse fireplace that had sand and cement and Gypsum plaster on it when I started work in the ground floor. Stripping this off revealed the very old and already damaged brick and stones that were past exposing as they were. Through careful sprayed layering of porous lime plaster and pointing tools I was able to recreate and maintain the basic shapes of these old original bricks and stones that would have been virtually impossible by conventional plastering methods.


Glyn House, Wishford

The internal walls had suffered many years of Cement and modern plasters that had to be removed before work could begin on the old flint and cob walls. I applied new cob and several inches of porous lime plaster to bring the walls back to level again before the final layers of lime plaster could be applied and traditional features reintroduced such as the chamfered edges and splayed window reveals.
