The time has finally come!
We are doing an acrylic stucco which is nicer than cement because it doesn't tend to crack, is less water permeable, and there are more color choices.
The guys showed up Monday morning and they finished up yesterday, with the scratch coat that is. Roy brought out both of his crews so we could get this finished quickly.(we secretly thinks he is tired of driving past our house and seeing the foam block. It's only been hovering over the hamlet of leavitt for two years now). We let this first coat dry for a few days and then the finish coat with the color will be applied. While it is drying we are starting the rock work in the front.
This is before the scratch coat was applied as you can see the huge difference below.
See? What a difference 2 days and 10 guys can make.
Um, this is the front of the house. Those silly wooden boards that you see are there to hold up the overhang until we are ready to put in the beams and rock work. If you look closely you can see three cement piles where the beams will be.
The lighting isn't the best, but you can see the two different colors of stucco. The lighter color will be where the rock will be and the darker color will be the stucco color.
Can I just tell you how great this is? It's like a Hollywood success story. Work real hard for a good long time and then you become an overnight success!
