"We would highly recommend a lime render. It is a completely natural product and is more flexible than a cementitious render. Atmospheric conditions need to be considered and you will need a firm familiar with using it but it is attractive, low maintenance and it allows the building to breathe."

"The term eco home is used broadly to describe any house which has been designed with sustainability or environmental concerns in mind. This can range from kitting your home out with the latest renewable technology for heat and power, to building a home that has a low energy demand in the first place."

"If your wall is not cavity insulated you can insulate from outside using specialist insulation and mesh over it and render"
