LUGGATE FARM HOUSE

August 16, 2016

Revisiting an old friend at Luggate farm house.

Luggate farm house, East Lothian.

This project is our second visit of restoration. We lime mortar roughcasting this building 5 years ago (can be seen in the past projects), this visit was to lime mortar repoint the Barn & outhouses.

Traditionally-constructed masonry buildings rely for weatherproofing on their ability to hold and evaporate water. Both stone and lime are porous materials and can’t totally be waterproofed (even with modern high-tech materials).
