Stone veneer

Tuesday, July 5

There was a high point to today.... the stone veneer installers came today. They arrived just as we were finishing up unloading the trim into the house.

The head mason, Randy, was very nice and very professional. The team was an eclectic bunch of looks and builds, but each one had a definite enthusiasm for stonework. They drove 2 hrs, just to lay the stones for us. They even brought camping equipment to stay overnight, so they could do it in a 2 day continuous shot.

By the time I got back from work, they had accomplished enough to give a good idea of what it was going to look like. Tim stopped over as well to check it out.

While we were there, it unfortunately started to rain. It kinda put a holt on the work, due to it has to be covered. We were told that if it gets wet enough, before it sets, the stones will start sliding off, so they covered it all up with plastic.

We chit-chatted with the crew a bit, before we left. They sure seemed to love there work. They had shown us pics on the camera phones and digital cameras of other houses they had been working on. We all agreed that when the work is completed, it will definitely set our house apart on the road.
