This was a hugely involved restoration project in the end. The previously existing render was falling off due to poor adhesion to the old lime render below which was failing due to age and trapped damp. We found seriously weakened wet cob. Lots of deep cracking and fractured cob which needed repairing. The gable ends were rebuild using timber stud and lath and lime plaster. There was a lot of rotten timber stud and old lath and plaster which all needed replacing with the same. We installed a new wall plate as the existing was rotten.
