Lime Construction on Progress

At SWN we are learning to work with lime! This material is rooted in our culture however it has gone out of use in recent decades, overshadowed by cement concrete. We are striving to bring lime back into mainstream use here in Nepal because of it’s low carbon footprint, versatility, and its connection to Nepali vernacular. Before we can start using lime in projects we must first thoroughly understand how to work with it so as to achieve the best results. In our opinion there is no better way to learn than with hands on experience, as such we are building our very own pizza oven using lime and bricks. This will allow us to experiment with various types of lime mortar and render.
