Long hours equals progress

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.

Endings and Beginnings

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.
