5.0 out of 5 stars Really good book
Having worked as cob and lime builder for number of years I can say this book offers some good examples. However it does focus more upon earth building as opposed to lime, stone etc as is needed in UK. Well worth a read though

3.0 out of 5 stars A good book, but...
This is an american book which describes the natural (earth) plaster used to finish new straw bale or rammed earth type houses. It contains a wealth of information on how to mix and apply these finishes and is written in an easy to read way. Photos and drawings are mainly black and white, although there are a few colour photos.

This is not however a book...

This is not however a book describing the traditional plaster types or techniques used for centuries on european houses. Whilst some of the information contained could certainly be useful for restoration of an old house, this is not really the subject of this book.

An absolutely excellent book on this fascinating subject. Well researched and practical. Can't wait to get out there and do some more plastering!

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly regarded, 10 Jan 2004
By A Customer
This book was reviewed in Building for a Future magazine (Winter 03/04) and well praised. It includes a lot of material about natural building methods, besides natural plasters. It gives a good account of the use of lime.
