Most likely. As with any masonry-type construction, there are some limitations to the installation. For example, if the temperature gets too low, or there is excessive moisture in the air it slows the curing time of the lime-binder. The lime-binder can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks to completely cure. The sequence of trades and inspections is a bit different as well. These are primarily planning and organization issues, and easily established in the work-flow.
