They thought I was mad to suggest an adobe floor here in the village but after 4 days of work it looks great! It is in no way flat and even but it is beautiful and my client is delighted with it. Thanks to Ianto for starting my cob ball rolling! Best Wishes to all, Su Hagan ( Cob in Bulgaria) 00359(0)895195318 (Bulgarian Mobile) 00359 6128263 (Bulgarian Landline) With Thanks.

Someone who know about lime finishes may need to help us out on this topic. > > David > > On Mar 31, 2010, at 6:16 AM, Dulane wrote: > > > I wonder what kind of paint is used on the outside and foundation currently? > > There doesn't appear to be much damage.
