First Coat Render

23 04 2015

With the help of a spray pump and some trusty helpers, the first coat of render went on in about one and a half days. The recipe was about 40 shovels of red maslin plasterer’s sand, 2 20kg bags of hydrated lime and half a bag of cement.

We raised the strawbales around this corner and along this wall one weekend last year. It actually looks quite straight.
