I'm super excited about doing the repointing this weekend. This is the feature wall in the kitchen and I think it's gonna be an absolute stunner once its repointed and cleaned up. This is tomorrow's job. Today I'm beavering away with finishing touches around the house. Happy weekend peeps!
This is a before and after picture of yet another stone wall in our house all steam cleaned and re-pointed by ourselves! It’s such an exhausting and labour intensive job, but so worth it in the end! Our kitchen has also been delivered! It should be fitted by the end of next week (minus the worktops 😭) 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I don’t know about anyone else, but because it’s so close to the finish line now, it feels so much harder! I’m loosing patience, I’ve cried with frustration, totally fed up with putting on my grubby workwear every weekend and tidying up after mucky tradesmen! The novelty of self building has completely worn off and at times I wonder, is it even worth it? Does anyone else feel like this? If you have been at this point, what did you do to get through it? The only comfort I can find at the moment is in my chocolate butter biscuits from Lidl (highly recommend!) and a strong decaf tea! #cotswoldstone#repointing#repointingstone#steamcleaning#beforeandafter#progresspic#kitchendesign#kitchen#kitchenremodel#wrenovation#wrenkitchens#isitoveryet#losingpatience#selfbuild#designandbuild#chocolate#tea#fatbuthappy
Nearly there with the exterior. It’s been a long, unexpected journey, moreso than that time I fell asleep on the Northern Line and ended up in Morden.
Swipe once to see our temporary fix, and twice to relive the 80’s horror from three years ago. Details below:
• Pebbledash removed and brickwork restored by Chris @artisan_brick_restoration • Path tiles by @londonmosaic and tiled by a guy in Catford whose name I forgot.
• Sandstone step made and fitted by Paul.
• White pebbles are from Stone Warehouse and for us, came with free added vitriol from a neighbour.
• Door is oak and was made bespoke by a carpenter who’s since fallen into administration. Don’t ask me who fitted it - he damaged our wall.
• Brassware is from Etsy
• Security guard was from @catsprotection, no longer in stock.
Chicago Common bricks should not be repointed with Portland cement. Chicago commons are very porous and need a lime based mortar that will breathe and release water. Portland cement is too strong and will force the water our through the brick and destroy the bricks. Like this. The brick has crumbled away, but the mortar remains. The opposite should be true (and is much cheaper in the long run). EDIT: @philadelphiarestoration recommends the premixed Natural Hydraulic Lime or NHL3.5 for lime mortars. Another recommendation is for PHL 5.0 (Simon on Facebook)
Goodbye pebbledash! When we bought the house, we told ourselves that we would be doing a public service by removing the pebbledash, and restoring the facade of one of the many Victorian buildings that have been disfigured over the years by this awful stuff. Well, public service complete! The scaffold finally came down last Friday, and we can now see the results of all our work! We are so happy with it! We really love London yellow stock bricks, the colours are so fantastic! Swipe to see what it used to look like....🤢. It was a long process, although it wouldn’t have been nearly as long if we were focussing on one thing at a time! All in all, we’ve removed all of the pebbledash, fully repointed the facade in traditionally finished lime mortar, fitted and painted hardwood sash windows (with the help of our joiner), repaired and painted the first floor window sills, cleaned and treated the main and bay window rooves, fitted new facia boards and guttering, and even repaired and painted a bit of nextdoor’s pebbledash to achieve a neat line. We decided not to undertake any brick cleaning partly because we like the weathered colour of the brickwork, and also because we didn’t want to do any further damage to the brick faces.
There’s still quite a lot to do before the front is fully finished, but we are getting there!
