Ready to see how cool Tabby is on different parts of the house. If some of you don’t know what tabby is, except for maybe a cute grey tabby cat. It’s a mixture of concrete, oyster shells, sand and water. Very popular here in coastal South Carolina.
As you might remember from my other nature house posts. I am approaching the final phase of the house. The tabby is applied on the lower part of the exterior of the house to give it a beachy look. My goals of getting into the house by April 25 is coming true. So all these final details are happening at the same time.
Tabby is a 200 years old process!
Tabby has been used here in the South for over 200 years. It’s amazing it’s still considered a very creative and practical way to protect your home from rot. The procedure for applying the tabby takes skill and mostly done by masons.
The lower part of the house!
Here’s what I learned from my builder who has worked with tabby, it can be used inside the house. So instead of a traditional brick or wooden fireplace. I had tabby applied on the frame of the fireplace. It was just amazing how awesome the tabby looks. I felt pretty good about the fireplace that I asked to have the over hood done in tabby as well.
Thanks for taking a look at the final phase of my home. Its pretty cool how things are coming along, even though it feels like there is so much to do before April 25, If you all want to see more and not miss out on the future posts.
