Making the building strong again

Having straightened the frame by lifting its south west corner, the serious business of putting structural rigidity into the structure could commence. In line with my proposals for a fully “breathable” and vapour-open fabric, finding a bracing board that had both vapour permeability and the structural capacity to brace the structure was an important first step. I chose Elka Strongboard from Ecological Building Systems to form the initial cladding to the repaired structure – all the details are here: https://www.ecologicalbuildingsystems.com/UK/Products/ELKA-Strong-Boards
