Why Lime?

It was actually Due to a mix up why we became so heavily involved in Traditional lime.

Half way through converting some outbuilding's on a farm into Holiday cottages for a client, We got stopped by National Parks. It seemed some reports had been missing from planning and it needed to be resolved.

The planning was re-submitted successfully However  National parks insisted That the building had to be restored in Traditional methods Including Lime Pointing, Plasterwork.

All walls had to be built in Lime & Earth.

All insulation had to be Lambs wool and wood fibre.
