Shower is getting the tadelakt treatment. So many hours going into this project, but I think it will be worth it when this is finally cured in two months.

This house looks like a dreamhouse to me. You must have had a great time building this all yourself. And now an even greater time living in it as a family.

Hi Daniel and LUCKY family! The word, tadelakt, and the pics of course, peaked my interest. Where did you learn of and get enough info to do this process? How long did it actually take? Is there a lot of wait time between coats? What is it that makes the project long?

Found another project.

I like yours. I also read that it is used to actually make sinks, ... .

Is there any concern about differential cracking between the tub and the tadelakt surfaces? What is the wall surface/on the wall to the left of the tub - is that a straw bale wall/coated?
 
But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
