Remember this room with it’s wallpaper missing in places. Well we had to strip it all off to see what lies beneath and found a few surprises.
Big areas of lime plaster had lost their key and crumbled under the wallpaper and under the window you’ll see my handy work below where I took out a sheet of plasterboard and chipped off patches of modern plaster so we can put in the lime mortar, then the lime plaster, then 4 or 5 coats of limewash!! LABOUR INTENSIVE.
You’ll also notice the bottom pane of the window has been removed and Owen has been repairing it, by removing the rotton timber and scarfing in new wood before re-glazing panes that needed it and painting with Linseed paint. More of that in another post.
