Mudroom Addition Pt 2: Lime Plaster Repair

In this video, I continue with my mudroom addition, this time demonstrating the repair of the lime plaster around the mudroom’s connection to the existing house. To connect the mudroom framing directly into the house framing I had to chip off some of the lime plaster on that north facing wall. Fortunately, lime plaster is easy enough to work with and I was able to chip off the exact amount that I wanted to, meaning the repair is covering a fairly small area. Still, it’s probably the most complicated part of this mudroom project. I love working with lime, and this video is a good taste of what it’s like to apply it on strawbale construction.
