Hello I am working on re-plastering a small cob house that over the summer in western North carolina experienced significant loss of external plaster and am looking to repairing with a mix containing our local cow dung, I am here to receive feedback on how to approach this idea, what questions should I be asking to determine if this is an appropriate idea? Does anyone have insight and experience in cow dung mixed plasters, as well as using whey? Thanks y'all I thank you for your time.

Hi Jonathan,

Could you provide photos, a more detailed outline plan of the building, its use, actual chronology, and you experience with earth and/or lime plasters?

Regards,

J
