Lime rendering process
Brithem had substantial cob repairs and a large number of structural timbers replaced including the inglenook beam. The final touches were the re-rendering and lime washing of the property.
In this photo, we have begun to remove the old sand cement render.
This shows the property with old sand cement render removed, ready for repair to the exposed cob and once this has been completed, for lime rendering.

Internal timber renovation and lime rendering
This job also included the replacement of windows and extensive internal repair work.
We were really pleased to receive the following testimonial form this customer:
‘Earthouse do what they say they are going to do, in the time scale and do a great job. Sean Parker, who heads it up is straightforward, and knows what he’s doing with a wealth of knowledge and experience. He really understands what is required, especially with period buildings, listings etc. and how to do the work without the faff so often found amongst so called experts. I’ve been involved in doing up old buildings for years and Sean really is up there with skill and plain hard work. There is a great team around him, and all good to be around – watching them work was a real learning curve for me around lime render, lime wash, and the cob in our very old thatched cottage which really did need expert hands . I trusted them and always felt confident, and this trust wasn’t in any way misplaced. Highly recommended!’ Steve Jamison, Brithem Bottom
