Make sure you have a ready supply, you will be glad of them as your hands crack and develop burns and sores; lime is not as nice as it looks! All innocent and white, light and powdery. Don’t be fooled, it burns, burns, burns.
That said the render is going on fast with Chris (our one and only labourer) and I applying whilst Gosia mixes. The rain keeps coming and threatens to spoil the party, but as yet we have managed to work through most of it and the sun has started to shine again today. Roughly two walls to do before the second coat is complete. Hooray
And remember, next time you see three people walking around wearing surgical gloves, covered in white powder; they might not be drug dealers, or hospital staff for that matter; it may be they are lime rendering 🙂
