Hello Nikolay,
Here in Lithuania 4 years ago we have built straw bale bathhouse (like
sauna, just with alot of moisture - we call it russian sauna), where we use
simple clay plaster about 3 cm. on interior wall and from the incident
water protect with wooden plankets (there is natural ventilation inside). On
exterior we did lime plaster - till now everything works fine. tadelact is
quite expensive way and not needed way to deal with it. As we saw its
enougth just clay plaster to deal with humidity and ussual you need to
protect just several places from the direct water and were are a lot of ways
to do it:)
best regards
