|Remember Joe's house from 2 updates ago ?
We did the stucco, now we're back to do the colored
on the inside.
|Color is added to the plaster.
We are using Keene's cement,
lime and fine white silica sand for an exceptionally hard finish.
|Stairway walls usually suffer their share of abuse. The durability of plaster walls help protect the beauty of the color plaster finish,|
|Brown coat on this custom home, The
stair tower is straight and round. Finish
will be REAL portland cement and REAL
sand, not the fake stuff that comes out of a bucket. Color is from Merlex stucco. Please check back to see the finished house.
|Kick out flashing is made from
copper like the
step flashing. Kick out is slid under the step flashing. A little spout
drains the water away from the wall, and not into the wall.
More about this house in the next update. Please check back.
|More flashing-We flashed the stone sill with
window cap. The flashing will be
mortar forming a "wash". Stones are angled down, deflecting water away from the wall.
|Rustic lintels Are flashed on top. Flashing is cut off just
the edge of the beam, or
lintel. The important thing is that the flashing is angled down toward the edge of the lintel.
|Ols 1920's lime and sand stucco is in need of replacement.||Mortar was applied way too thin origimally. Our thickness is 3/4", requiring tearing off the wood lath to maintain the same thickness.|
