Restoring the inside of one of our old agricultural stone barns using the limewash. Limewash was traditionally used on farms to kill bacteria and prevent mould growth as it is a strong alkali but non-toxic to animals. It protects the walls from damp whilst allowing them to still breathe. The bonus is that it creates a nice and bright workspace.
N.b. We used limewash from Limebase www.limebase.co.uk/limewashes-pigments-and-binders/limewash

Just a little bit about all that's going on at Lowertown Farm, in the heart of Dartmoor National Park where the wild ponies roam on England's largest wilderness.
