Cost Overruns at Earthbag Clinic and Schools in Leogane, Haiti — 1 Comment

  1. From Tina: Concerning using lime over earthen plaster, I have heard equal stories of successes & failures- but it’s the failures that make me cautious. The most common complaint is the lime coat delaminating from the earth plaster. Does this happen due to the differing rates of expansion & contraction, or is it more a function of improper application?

    The Steens at have a lot of experience, and they commonly apply lime over earth. I’m not willing to take a chance on any paid gigs, but would like to explore this on smaller outbuildings or projects at home
