Timber frame restoration

Straw Clay

raw straw-clay mass for repairs and renewals of infill and for the trussed ceiling filling. "Loam loam" is the original form of loam building material in timber-framed construction. The straw-clay mixture was prepared with animal power and installed by "Kleiber" - the clay craftsman. The earth-moist mixture is best prepared with a mixing paddle and spread plastically tough with a trowel on the wattle or trellis. Straw Clay ANTIK contains particularly long straw.
