The Kitchen Sink Episode
The stud wall has a slip straw infill and lath strips for plaster adhesion. On the outside I painted the strips with a sanded primer. Inside plaster was clay, sand, cellulose and straw. Outside I decided to include just about everything I had used to date in the mix. That would be: clay,lime,sand,brick dust,blow in cellulose paper,shredded paper,straw, horse manure and prickly pear cactus juice. I wanted an even wall so I tacked up 3/8" screed strips over the studs. There has been a little cracking right along the spaces left after removing the screed strips. I have been filling those as it dries. The weather is perfect, about 70 degrees, light mist, cloudy.
