Hello from ye olde world

Hello
Old cottage owner in Gloucestershire here.
Lime work.
The cottage - 1600s - has largely escaped the evils of cement and gypsum, although it has some cement render which will eventually have to come off.
Hard to find lime plasterers and they tend to be busy and understandably not want to come and do fiddly jobs.
Did have some work done in 2011 , a limecrete floor and a wall done in two-coat lime and bagged, but the plasterer was working for a Welsh builder I was using and he came 100 miles, not really practicable for small jobs, so I've had to become more self-propelled.
I hope you chaps can save me from committing DIY disasters.
