Cat here! I'm doing some patching on my 100 year old brick building have been using lime,sand with some wood ash and have bonded the whole mess with strips of paper dipped in and slathered on to the old lath. It seems to be working well and I am getting no cracks. Not much powdering either. I have collected a bunch of baleing twine from local farmers who use the stuff once and dump it. I was crocheting it into door mats and such but the thought of adding a matrix of it to my ceiling holes sounds interesting! for the good of all C. >From: Barbara Roemer <roemiller at infostations.net> >To: Quinn <quinn1 at mindspring.com>, Copper Harding <copperharding at yahoo.com>,<coblist at deatech.com> >Subject: Re: [Cob] great article!! >Date: Fri, 15 Jul 2005 08:06:34 -0700 > >Quin's suggestion of embedded rope is echoed in current strawbale testing >with hemp netting, knotted at every intersection, particular mesh size >specified by the engineer according to the testing, stitched through the >bales and affixed on a particular nailing schedule to the plates.
