We have been instructed to renovate this charming Cob Cottage in Trencreek, Newquay.
Sand and Cement applied over the years and now severe damp problems and render blown and cracked in various areas. Once the cement based render was removed it was evident that most wood lintels were rotten and had to be replaced, again once the moisture is locked in wood will decay and rot eventually also causing the cob to collapse.
Various areas needed some T.L.C and cob stitching together and a mesh over lay to prevent further cracking.
St Astier N.H.L 2 mixed with C.L.S 28 in first scatt and C.L.S 30 for dubbing coats followed by C.L.S 33 for top coat.
