As we near the end of 2018, we thought we would share highlights of just some of the amazing and interesting projects we are proud of being involved in.
As Cob and Lime Specialists, our works this year have taken us all around the County of Cornwall and even into parts of Devon. It’s not until you start travelling around Cornwall that you really appreciate what a beautiful part of the Country we live in, even when it’s raining!
We have had the pleasure of conserving, preserving and restoring some of Cornwall’s amazing historic properties, and we wanted to share some of the highlights with you.
Lime Rendering and Lime Pointing Cornwall
This detached cob and stone-built cottage was suffering from internal damp problems. Our works to this property included Lime rendering to the high-level cob, Lime pointing to the low-level stonework and the introduction of a 4-stage Mineral Paint System. To learn more about this project please have a look at our Website Portfolio page.
Lime Repointing Cornwall
Lime repointing works were undertaken at this Grade II Listed Farmhouse to prevent further deterioration of the friable stonework. To learn more about this project please have a look at our Website Portfolio page.
Lime Rendering and Lime Pointing South Devon
This Historic Farmhouse, protected by a National Trust Restrictive Covenant, was suffering with breathability problems. Our works to this property included Lime rendering to the high-level blockwork and Lime pointing to the exposed stonework. To learn more about this project please have a look at our Website Portfolio page.
Lath and Lime Plastering Cornwall
Some of the internal Lath and Plastering at this Grade I Listed Historic Church had failed. To repair these failings, we undertook Lath repairs and introduced a new 3-coat Lime plaster application. To learn more about this project please have a look at our Website Portfolio page.
Lime Pointing and Chimney Repairs Cornwall
This wonderful Period Property was suffering from damp problems. To help maintain the breathability of the building and limit the damp, the works we undertook included Chimney Repairs, Lime Pointing, Lime Rendering and the introduction of a 4-stage Breathable Paint System.

Looking Forward to 2019
2019 brings a busy start to the year for Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd. Our first project in January, acting as Principle Contractor, is to bring life back into a non-habitable Grade II Listed 17th Century dwelling in Cornwall.
As you can see from the picture above this will be quite an undertaking, but we are really looking forward to restoring this property back to its former glory.
We will bring you further updates on this Historic Building Restoration as the project progresses.
We would like to thank all of our Clients for giving us the opportunity to maintain their wonderful Historic buildings.
That’s it from us for 2018, so we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
