Lath: a thin narrow strip of wood nailed to rafters, joists, or studding as a groundwork for slates, tiles, or plaster - torn out from our Project House
And this one isn't done for any artistic reason, I just thought you might like to see what lath looks like when it's still on the walls. All the plaster has been removed from the lath and now dear hubby is in the process of removing the lath walls. I actually like this look in some ways and he asked if I wanted him to put Plexiglas on top and we'll just go with it. Um, no...I don't like it quite that much!
