Stone Veneer

Wednesday, July 6

In the morning we brought the masons coffee and donuts, then we hang out for a bit, while watching the installation for a bit. The crew camped out on our property last night in tents. One good thing about not having the concrete poured in the garage, was that the crew could stake the tent in the garage and be sheltered.

They were really moving along with the stonework and told us that they'd be done by the time I came back from work.

Randy also had started on the hearth. It was a little different than Tim and I were imagining, but it actually looked better. We had imaged that the hearth would be more larger pieces, but instead it would be smaller pieces. Which is fine..... and actually will probably hold up better, cause we were told that the thinner hearth stone, we had asked for, cracks more easily. It looked really awesome and I can't wait to see what it looks like done.

Later on, when I came back from work, I was amazed at how awesome the stonework had turned out. It was even better than I had imagined and really brings the house to life.

I'm so glad that we had changed the stone, by the garage to wrap around the corner. originally the architect hadn't wrapped it and I asked it to cap around. It looks awesome and not so fake that way.

The hearth looks awesome, I can't wait to see what it'll look like with the walls painted and the shelves installed above the stone.
