This private residence in Toronto, Canada, features a standard 3 coat process of lime renders.
The Smuggler’s Ranch House, located on Santa Cruz Island off the coast of Santa Barbara, California was originally built in 1887 out of rubble masonry with lime mortar to hold it all together. The island used to be the largest privately held island off the continental United States before being transferred to the National Park Service and the Nature Conservancy. It was used for extensive ranching for much of its history but can now be visited as a National Park. The restoration of the Smuggler’s Ranch House began in the summer of 2012 using the 3-coat process with different graded EcoMortar® and finished with Lime Paint.
This extensive preservation work on these historical graves has been executed using exclusively Saint Astier® Natural Hydralic Lime mortar and plaster as well as lime paint.

The center piece of Estate Belvedere, the Sugar Mill, dating back to 1763, was a place where the sugar cane was refined into precious sugar and molasses. After several years of careful and loving restoration, using Saint Astier® NHL mortars, and under the direction of architect William Taylor, it is now part of the luxurious Estate Belvedere.
Constructed in 1854, Casa Grande was the residence of the manager of the New Almaden Mining Company until 1925. It has subsequently been used as a club, restaurant, bar, brothel, etc. Time and inadequate maintenance took a heavy toll on the building until it became part of the Almaden Quicksilver County Park. Under the guidance of Architectural Resource Group, it has been restored to its prime state, using Saint Astier® Natural Hydraulic Limes, when the structure was covered with a lime plaster, scored to simulate ashlar masonry.
Established in 1861, Charles Krug Winery is the first winery established in the Napa Valley. The restoration of the winery involved repointing and plastering with Saint Astier® Natural Hydraulic Lime in order to match the original materials.
