Due to the thick and hard cement render, the cob was saturated with ground water and rain water from the cracking. This had caused the chimney breast to be seriously weakened and it was trying to collapse. We deconstructed this and rebuild a token gesture chimney breast. We applied a lime render and lime washed in a lovely ochre-based colour. Internally we found 2 new fireplaces and carried out a lot of lime plastering to allow the moisture out of the walls.
