Re: Leave lath in place?

The only room we've demo'd so far is the downstairs bathroom. We left the lathe in there and are likely going to rock over it. It's the more unusual lathe that I have seen that actually has grooves cut instead of being strips. I'd like to hear more about people doing insulation without filling the e...

Anyway I'll try to search my brain and see if I can remember. It works wonderfully on lime deposits, hard wa...

Re: Are you in your 'forever house'?
