Even with >> "creative" plastering? >> >> Keep in mind that CEMENT DOES NOT bind with clay/earth.. it only COATS the particles.. and make a poor replacement of the stronger bonds of hydrated lime mixing with clay particles and changing on the smallest level-- permanently--- so adding lime to the cob, and using it on the base wall part, or even a pure ime plaster will not stop water from flowing... fundamental aspect of the power of nature... look at how dams are built! they are cement overkill to the max, and even they burst too. water always wins..respect it, and go build higher ; > >> Charmaine Taylor Publishing www.dirtcheapbuilder.com www.papercrete.com PO BOX 375 CUTTEN CA 95534 USA Tel: 707-441-1632 11-4 PST
