Hi, I am converting a small stone barn, I plan to use, jute/hemp insulation with Celenit boards over it. Is this a good option? I’ve heard that it’s necessary to use fiberglass mesh over the Celenit, is there another option? I would like to use all natural products to fiberglass doesn’t sit well with that. Thank you much for taking time to advise me. Regards A
Hi, thanks for contacting us.
We can’t really comment on the insulation as there are multiple different types of hemp insulation, but if the walls are relatively dry then it can be used. The boards will also help improve the insulation value and provide a stable base for plastering. Mesh is the easiest and we find it to be the best option but one alternative could be to use animal hair within the plaster.
Please let us know if you needed anything further.
