Insulating with lime plaster

Insulating external walls using fibreboard ,hemp plaster and lime finish plaster.A complete insulation system

The rest of the room had existing lime plaster which was in poor decorative condition. Rather than remove the basically sound lime plaster we patched some areas with lime mortar, applied a breathable priming plaster that I have developed  and then skimmed the whole area using lime finished plaster.This saves the existing lime plasterwork leaving a beautiful, breathable finish and not costing a fortune
