76: First day of daubing!

Here are some pictures of our first day of daubing ("the chinking" would be the metal lathe).  Mark Budden came to help.  It was hard work and moved slowly.  Thanks Mark!


  1. How is your daubing holding up?
    What product did you use?

  2. I wound up using steel mesh with 16p nails every 4" and fiberglass-reinforced mortar from Lowes with red-clay-colored pigment. Not authentic, but it's holding up like new and looks great!
