    This is the same property as in your latest post was there a particular reason that you started a new thread ?
    We have used Hemcrete to IWI a solid stone walled cottage (450mm thick stone walls)
    The rear wall was built into the hillside up to eaves level. We painted on 2 coats of tanking slurry, all the way up the rear wall, then sloped off diagonally down the side walls and did about 3 feet around the base of the rest (no dpc in 1834)

    In your case I would leave the concrete inside and paint the tanking on all the way up the rear wall.

    Hemcrete was shuttered using battens screwed through with long s/s screws, spaced off the wall 100mm min
    The battens were left in place to secure the Hemcrete ‘wall’ back to the stone wall. We also used some plastic insulation fixings in a few places that ended up enveloped in the cast Hemcrete.
    The thickness varied because of the uneven walls but the battens were set plumb. The surface was then lime plastered, s/s mesh over the battens. No gap, decrement delay and all that magic...!
