Paragon is a grand Grade 1 Listed Georgian Terrace designed by Thomas Attwood and built in 1768. Situated in Bath city centre, it is surrounded by period architecture. Guinness World Record holder and Britain’s fastest snowboarder Jamie Barrow, decided to take on a slower challenge to fully renovate a two storey apartment in the terrace.
Jamie re-plastered the apartment in lime to ensure it remained breathable. He said:
“In the basement of a Grade 1 Listed building, there were obviously some damp issues. As we were not allowed to damp proof these buildings, we had to use breathable materials, which is why we used lime plaster on the walls.”
Jamie decided to use Earthborn Claypaint due to its high level of breathability, thick creamy consistency and ease of use. He added:
“We initially used a lime wash as this is what was suggested but after many coats it just wasn’t covering well. This is when I looked into what breathable paints are available and came across Earthborn Claypaint. I decided to give it a go and after just 1 coat it covered amazingly and gave a really nice luxury feel. That is why I am now using it on my other projects.”
