The Linhay - Cob Barn Conversion
This cob barn conversion required the removal of existing failed render and re rendering with lime mortar. The mortar used was NHL (natural hydraulic lime) 2. On the removal of the old render it was found that repairs were required to the wall surface. This consisted of refacing the cob wall with cob blocks and bricks. We also found that wooden lintels required replacement because there was insufficient bearing. The completed rendering was left unpainted.
