Just remember, structures are only there to keep the finishes in place...

Nice.

Now I just need to figure out where I can use that without getting the look.

Use it on rentals. Just make it look nice...

Maybe perfect a skip shovel finish or something.

Re: Point Or Parge?


I've started a repoint of a barn in random rubble stonework. Being done in a 50/50 mix of sharp/building sand and 3.5 NHL. Any really large gaps can be helped by Galleting using smaller stones. All done with the traditional pointing tools.

About the only traditional pointing tool I have is my index finger. The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to just tell him to get a mason. This sort of job is pretty much at the bottom of my experience/competence list, and at 69, I'm becoming more interested in other lists.

Went up to see them last Sunday Fred.
Here's a few pics. The steps to the upper floor may need a bit of pointing.

Re: Point Or Parge?


It is a peaceful setting to work in. Talking to the owner of the local lime suppliers today, and he isn't the biggest fan of NHL 3.5, although he thinks as the barn is mainly flint it should be OK. Bought a long handled churn brush to save my knuckles which the dog seems to think is a hedgehog to be flushed out.
Some of the old mortar is falling out on it's own.
It's a 2 storey barn, and the upper floor is concrete. Looks like they used some of the asbestos roofing sheets as formwork for it. Looks really rough, hope it's got some rebar in it.

The owner thinks the house and barn were built around 1820, although the concrete floor and asbestos roof were added much later.

It's maybe, maybe not gonna be funny, but this is probably what I'm looking to do at 69 lol.
