By Patrick McAfee, commissioned by the Building Limes Forum Ireland
Lime Works is an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand and easy-to-use guide to the many uses of lime in building, including repairs of historic structures and new buildings.
Aimed at the Building Owner, the Practitioner (Stone-mason, Bricklayer and Plasterer) and the Specifier, Lime Works is highly illustrated with many contemporary images and line drawings, with numerous cross-references which offer the reader easy access to all sections. Previous technical knowledge is not necessary, as the question-and-answer format leads the reader through the processes clearly and comprehensively.
Patrick McAfee is unrivalled in the depth of his experience and expertise in working with, and teaching and writing about, the use of lime in Ireland. A stonemason and instructor who travels the world, he is the author of Irish Stone Walls and Stone Buildings.
