Quicklime has arrived!

We can’t do anything with it yet but we are excited that we finally got our quicklime. We had to go to Louisville and pick it up. It is 2,000 pounds of quicklime pebbles. It looks like white gravel. We will be doing a video on what it is and how we plan on using it to repair all the brick and stone of the Mooreland House. Finding a supplier of quicklime wasn’t easy. It just isn’t something that is used for building anymore. If you are curious about it you can do a YouTube search for “hot lime mortar” and see what our plans are. Anyway… it is great to be done with quarantine and warmer weather is just around the corner. Happy Friday!

      Well, at one time it was limestone gravel. They heated it up to over 1000 degrees Celsius and now it is quicklime. Science is cool.
