Hi . Just wondering if anyone can provide any advice . We are currently renovating a cottage which is approx 350 years old . We’re just at the stage of starting to insulate and we’re advised to batten out and insulate that way therefore hiding all pipework etc . However , I’ve recently read an article and have been put off that idea as worried about trapping in the moisture . I’ve read about hemp lime plaster and like that idea as it apparently allows walls the breathe etc but not sure how we would hide pipework ? So confused , please help !
