This page is more about things I find interesting, or links to sites you may find of use when trying to find things about design, cob building supplies, paint and odds and sods. If you feel I'm missing something, please let me know. It's easy to make change and easy to look after the things that matter. And the pic on the right, my dog, she often comes to work with me.
The Paint & Lime logo was designed by Martin at Blue Moon in Hertfordshire. I have worked with Martin since the early 1990s and you will not find a more creative mind or imaginative designer. He's created campaigns for Fosters, Virgin Cosmetics, Aer Lingus, Credit Suisse to name a few. If you are looking for an edge or something different, a twist or just good design, take a look at his website.
Possibly the best paint either for indoors or outside I have found. Wonderful colours, safe to use and great for the environment. Earthborn paints are special – there are no nasty smells and the distinctive mellow colours cover like a dream. Take a look at their website to find out more.
Lime Stuff supplies almost everything you need in relation to cob buildings, from lime render to limewash and host of other things too. They are a great team, always willing to help and offer advice. If you are thinking of doing some repairs yourself, here is where you start.
