49/365 I Hurt. Really.
Day 49. Spent the weekend doing the stone veneer on my porch. So far I've finished one end and done all but the grouting on this end. The long side I still haven't touched.
Laying stone is certainly more art than technical skill. Once I figured out the proper mix for the mortar the skill part was pretty easy. Unless a stone was really heavy I didn't have to worry about propping it until it set, although if you look in the lower left of the frame you'll see that I've propped one really heavy stone with another one just in case.
Time for some serious painkillers and a nap I think.
Strobist info: FL-36R left of camera on 1/8th. Digi-Slave 3000 right of camera triggered by povertywizard.
So far I've rebuilt this porch from the ground up, layed the paver walkway you see here and installed the low voltage landscape lighting. I still have to hang the ceiling and install the screens and screen doors before I'll be done.
