500 Year Old Cob Wall with a new Lime Plaster Finish

This wall is situated in a 500 year old Devon long house and has just been plastered with 4 different layers of traditional Lime Plaster, no paint has been applied yet. These layers of plaster include the well known Horse hair scratch coats, a technique dating back to the 12th century and still a favourite among modern day lime plasterers for it’s flexibilty and it’s ability to let the old cob walls breath,. This is very important for the life time and preservation of the Cob itself. With proper care and the application of these traditional techniques, there is no reason why your Cob house shouldn’t last another 500 years!
