This Grade II Listed cob cottage in Truro, Cornwall saw Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd act as agents in the application for Listed Building Consent – providing architectural drawings, material specifications/methods and constant liaising with Cornwall Council to meet specific requirements in this Conservation Area.
In stages this cob cottage has seen the removal of cement, lime wash and many applications of non-breathable paint systems.
On this project we removed the cement render on the front elevation and repaired any small holes in the cob using Lime.
In keeping with the surrounding cob properties and characterful natural undulations of this cob cottage we introduced a 3-coat Lime render in Truro and it is currently drying before a breathable paint system is applied.
As a staged project our next visit will see the gable of the property have the same sympathetic Lime applications as the front elevation.
