  • Slate stone plinth – Ilfracombe

This slate built property from the 18th century was damp because of the modern cement render so it was essential it was replaced.  I used a hydraulic lime to firstly point in and stabilise the slate walls before applying haired and unhaired coats of hydraulic lime render.

Much of the nice character was restored and the stone plinth was pointed up and left exposed.
