I thought grade two meant you can use modern materials on the interior?

Never would’ve thought of putting limelite anywhere near a ceiling! It’s cement based so if your going for traditional lime materials it’s not the craic.

Not that I’m an expert on traditional lime plastering no matter how much @essexandy tries to big up my skills with his hero worship of me :coffe:

If you are dealing with conservation officer then there really is no written guide

Most of it is there own interpretation and what they want to see....

The rule of thumb is replace anything with like for like ..(materials ).unless they object
