Drying out – me and the plaster

with one comment

Inside final coat is done and the exterior is done.   Now its a drying process for about 7 to 10 days to let the clay plaster set up.  Next week won’t see much action other than me digging and working on the solar array stuff.   Kind of looks like the pigment on the interior coat will be a sandy gold when it dries.  I have the option of leaving it as it or later painting it, probably with a milk paint.  Painting seals it up so less chance of any damage to the walls.   Will see next year about that.

Outside walls have 5/8 inch of plaster.   Once this dries the cedar siding will go up over it.   That should be a fast process.  Small house.  Cedar will both look good and weather well in the great white north


Outside plaster, first coat and almost done on the north wall

One wall done and the white natural clay colour on the other wall. I think it will dry a bit lighter in colour

South wall done and the truth window (showing the straw behind it) which is an old russian abacus I found

West side deck with the kitchen window in the corner. I think the two decks will be about 615 square feet total so lots of space to drink

  1. Wow that looks really great Cameron! I love the darker colour on the inside! So you are drying out until the decks are done to start drinking on…. 🙂 good plan. So what is a ‘truth’ window?? And why is there wood strips on the inside walls?

    Will you be ready to move in before the snow flies?
