Here is part of a phone conversation I had with Dave, a contractor owner/builder in Colorado who built his own adobe home:
Below is a video I recently made (May, 2020) from an almost 1.5 hour consultation I had with George, a retired home builder. George had a contractor whom he thought was an adobe expert trowel on a new mud plaster to his 1830’s home. Unfortunately, within two weeks or so after the job was completed, it had a catastrophic failure.
George called me, hoping I could help in this unfortunate situation. I knew this situation with George and the unusual circumstances surrounding it was unique and would make an excellent informational video for other mud adobe homeowners that might encounter similar challenges:
