I’m going to be a stoner

I’ll try almost anything at least once so; this weekend I’ll be installing a stone veneer on the front exterior wall of our house. It’s been years since I have done any masonry work; and then it was using bricks. This is a totally different procedure.

Jane and I made a template of the wall and we’ve laid out the stone so that we have all the spacing figured out already. We’ll start on Friday night by removing the existing wood siding and prepping the wall for the stone and installing the top sill. Saturday will be a day of mixing mortar, cementing the stone in place and then grouting. With a little luck and a lot of prayer, we should be done by the end of the day.
