The photo below is Nancy a few weeks ago putting the lime plaster on the wall underneath the window. All the existing walls needed a new coat of plaster and it was quite time consuming and many buckets of plaster carried up the three floors. Notice the difference between the old stone and plaster on the left side and the new plaster on the right.And below, is the same window after Nancy had finished lime plastering and gave it a couple coats of a light yellow lime wash. We'd just started to put down the new flooring. To any of those of you who think you might detect a certain pitch to the floor, yes, you would be right. The floor is neither flat nor level. C'est la vie. It is now at least sturdy and doesn't bounce with weight.
Here is the floor with just a few planks remaining to be set and nailed. The lime wash has since dried and evened out to a nice pale yellow. Because it's still wet in this picture, it looks rather splotchy. The floor has since been stained and finished to match the other floorboards in the foreground.
