We meet many homeowners who are keen to tackle simple jobs themselves, such as basic lime pointing, limewashing and even traditional plastering and rendering.


Maybe the client has a tried and trusted builder who is unfamiliar with the traditional materials required for repair, but is keen to learn. We are able, in certain circumstances, to provide ‘on-site’ training, working along side the homeowner or builder to overcome a very steep learning curve.


We can advise on the necessary materials and assist in project planning a ‘DIY’ scheme. Marianne has assisted many individuals to learn the basic skills necessary for certain repair tasks.
