The rain has been absolutely nuts lately, so stucco has been a no-go. The seams in the wall are still clearly visible, so another day of dry-time is in order. But, the stone is finished, as of today. A little cleanup is in order. The hearth will be stained to appear like one continuous piece of stone. The lids are on the boxes. Most importantly, the difficult conversation with Contractor Steve happened in several parts. I marked all of the terribly crooked stones that carried a request to chisel them off and replace them. It's much better. All of the super-duper-painful-to-look-at ones have been replaced. What can I say? I'm somewhat of a visual idiot savant. I see a grape wreath at the top. Another update tomorrow . . .
