I took the early ferry and got to the Shoreline job before 8 a.m. It was another nice day and I was able to get the entire length of the wall underway. The first section is ready for capping. I got to put in some cool items today like an iron train wheel, a metal door, and a huge piece of quartz. I love to use the wall as a place for highlighting special things. More of the same tomorrow.
By tomorrow I should be done with a Bitterroot Ledgestone garage veneer that has been very slow going. The stones are very small so it is hard to see progress but I completed a huge section today. Tomorrow I work on the narrower side and a shallow arch.
I started a new job over the weekend that is a ferry ride away. It is worth the commute to work for such appreciative and enthusiastic clients. I am excited for this project as it is my favorite type of masonry to do, brick and stone mixture. I poured a footing, laid the block and started the first corner. It is a nicely shaped wall, gently curving, two feet tall with an opening in the center for stone steps. More pics to come next week.
