|Bottom of brick piers at the entrance are
starting to fall apart.
|Decorative blocks are made to hide our
brick repair and patch. These get a pebble
finish and look like they might have been

|The house was a victim of aluminum siding.
With the siding torn off, a few small patches were required. The original stucco was still in good shape after more than a century.
|Removing the siding tore off a lot of
the stucco on the bay window. We stripped off the lath and stucco, put in new insulation, and new lath and stucco.
|With new paint, this nice old stucco house will be back to its original glory.||The first metal lath came out about 1890.
This sheet lath was made from a sheet of
metal, with holes punched in it.
