|Fast forward to the
finished wall shows how
we capped the spacer and the electrical box
with metal flashing. This prevents any rot
behind the panel.
|Porch was done in 2003
leaving a gap between
the bottom of the stucco and the porch.
This looks a lot neater than a sloppy gob
on the bottom.
Also the gap provides relief from building movement, drainage for the stucco, and
the ability to replace the boards in the future.
|On the 2014 porch we put
flashing on the ledger board.
A piece of the finish floor material and a piece
of masonite were used to gauge the plaster
The new flooring will slide easily under the stop.
|Porch roof from 2003
shows the gap between
the stucco and the flashing was never caulked.
These gaps should never be caulked !
The gap is a water exit for the stucco.
|The windows and even
the soffits are covered with plastic and tape.
Pebble dash splatters all
over the place and the misssion is zero clean up.
|A view of my office.
Mortar boxes are raised off the ground to
minimize bending and stooping.
Bags are stacked high to minimize lifting.
