External Lime Rendering and Lime Pointing

A lot of our work involves the removal of inappropriate sand and cement renders on cob and stone buildings and the application of a new lime render that allows the building to breathe.  This is applied in 3 coats: 2 base coats with hairs or fibres, and a finer top coat usually sponge finished.

Internal Plastering

Internal plastering in lime, clay tadelakt and gypsum.

Cob Repairs and Conservation

We often work on cob buildings.  After removing old render coats we carry out any necessary cob repairs to movement cracks etc. before re-rendering in lime.  We also do new cob work if required/ requested.

Hempcrete Construction

Carbon-negative 'breathable' buildings with excellent thermal mass.


Training: in the use of lime, clay and conventional gypsum plasters. Workshops are available to home-owners, self-builders or contractors on site.
