This inviting or "bidding" was usually called "lating" or "lathing;" from the A.-S.

The outer walls of a stone house should always be firred off inside for lathing and plastering, to keep them thoroughly dry.

All corners and angles should be framed solid and have two-inch projections for lathing.

This schoolhouse, even to the lathing, was made of black walnut that was sawed at a local mill.

In at least one of the Oraibi kivas the plastering of the wall is laid on sticks that form a kind of lathing.

Wooden studding, furring, or lathing should not under any circumstances be placed against a chimney.

There will be no lathing, except occasionally on the ceilings; even this will not be necessary.
