Stone to wall joint, how to?

Post by RBailey » Thu 27th Aug, 2020 3:49 pm

The quest to banish damp continuous, this time the kitchen.

The original plan was to cut it back just the lower affected area and then plaster in lime.

However, the creative director thought I might be nice all back to stone.

(You can tell a previous gypsum based re-plaster bodge at the lower level compared what was lime at the top.

I think it finished up nicely once all chased and re-pointed (with lime of course).
Image

The bits of plaster at the top and side had to remain because of power cables and the door on the right way is 1980's so will be a horrible breeze block construction.

My question is how to deal with the joint at the edges between the stone wall and the remaining plaster?

My current thought is to round over the edge with radius, but any comments, suggestions or abuse appreciated.

Thanks,
Richard B.

cornice at the top, or would that look out of place?

Again by the door, can you do it by cutting right in and then a piece of timber architrave all round the door or again would that not fit in with everything else

A piece of timber beading - oak, why not, or softwood painted to match the plaster - butted up to the edge of the gypsum, and the gap between it and the stone filled with lime mortar.

I'd leave it just as it is. There is inevitably a clash between the two styles, and smoothing the join in any way just emphasises that this is a rather twee affectation.
Left as it is displays it for what it is - a bit of original wall displayed on view. It needs no border.
