I am currently building a light earth 6mx4m room and have just completed the second coat of mud render. So far everything has gone well, with the usual caveats of it taking longer and being more work than expected. A 6mx4m room shouldn't be a big job should it?

I was going to use whitewash without additives on both the internal and external walls,but after much research which has produced a huge range of options i am not so sure.

My main concern is the durability of the whitewash. The consensus seems to me that the whitewash will have to be redone every one to two years and is easily rubbed off.

I would like to know other peoples experience and thoughts about whitewash, whitewash additives and other permeable paints before making a decision on what to use.

Thanks
Simon
