From the Author

I've worked with lime for over 25 years and I've repaired a lot of old buildings with it. If you've got some common sense, you can use lime too. It won't cost you a fortune, you'll do repairs that will last for ages, and you'll help the environment at the same time. You'll never go back to cement.
