Sailing Along

What a great rate of knots we are sailing at this week.

I have enlisted the help of Mat and his Uncle Cameron. Together the three of us have crepied the bathroom walls (this is a sharp sand and lime mortar mix which is slapped into all of the joints and cracks to secure the loose stones and seal  the mud joints. It also provides a great key for the plaster and ensures that you do not use so much of the more expensive materials)


The ceiling has also been plastered and half of the walls. The final part and the little snagging bits will be done tomorrow.

And after spending so much time removing the old lime plaster and sand blasting all of the house we have also rendered the kitchen walls today.


I still cant quite get my head round the fact we only started the main house on th 11th November last year.
