A good guide to lime for a beginner, a very comprehensive book. Best book on lime I have bought, it is the one we read on site. It is well written with clearly labelled diagrams and very useful recipes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Country Cottage Conservation, 2 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very general book with useful information. Would be a great book if you were thinking of buying an old cottage. Excellent photos throughout.
There are some great diagrams especially the one about lime. Covers all aspects of cottages walls, floors, roof, windows, door, plaster, chimneys, paint finishes, woodworm and our friend damp. Discusses cottages in the future. The book recognises most cottages will have had some modernisation which may not have been appropriate and what to do about it. It does often recommend getting expert advice. Unfortunately it did not include enough information about the construction of roofing timbers for me.

A good book covers all aspects of damp. Clear diagrams. Explains the causes of damp, different methods of treating it and the appropriate methods for your property type . A comprehensive book ideal to buy before seeking expert damp advise. I should have bought this book when I bought the damp cottage rather than just before starting building work.
