[Cob] Questions about LimeAmanda Peck ap615 at hotmail.com

I had the same problem with bags of hydrated lime. The local farm bureau co-op doesn't carry it, neither does that of the county to the south. Big box hardware/building supplies, ditto. I could have driven down to a lime kiln a little over a hundred miles away. Then I discovered that, at least in the spring, the TSC (Tractor Supply Company) has or can get it. Then some people newly moved into the county to the north were puzzled that I ever had any trouble, because THEIR county's farm bureau co-op always has it. So ask around. Mortar mix has the same disadvantage as your local clay--not much flexibility. I think I'd buy some of whichever--clay or sand--you think you're more likely to need (sand, I'd guess) ................ Karen Clouston writes (snipped): I'm having trouble finding a place to buy lime (although I haven't looked much beyond the big-box hardware stores). In my search though, I've found a mortar mix which is something like 1 part type S lime, 1 part portland cement, and six parts fine sand. Do you think I could use that instead? I know that buying these things separately will allow me more room to play with various mixes, so maybe that's the way to go. Thought I would ask though. _________________________________________________________________ Click, drag and drop.
