Can Lime use instead of Cement in Building Construction

Some 50-60 years back entire Indian subcontinent was using lime for masonary work and European countries were using pozzolana, which is almost similar to lime.

Use of lime became obsolete due to lime’s inconsistent quality, more initial setting time, lesser load bearing capacity, troublesome storage etc.

The emergence of RCC in construction doesn’t require any load bearing wall,as to utilize the floor area maximum.

Otherwise, if you are not in hurry to complete the project, you may adopt lime for construction of thick outer walls, which will reduce air conditioning load.
