|Old 1828 bricks are soft and have mortar missing in
places, but are still solid. Windows are covered during demo to protect from flying mortar.
|S shaped irons that support the joists will be stuccoed over.|
|Heat tent goes up.||Thermometer on my heater says 22 degrees.
Within 10 minutes the tent will be warm enough to walk around in with a T-shirt on.
|Loose bricks are replaced with mortar with a lot of lime and little cement. A heavy lime mix is soft like the original mortar, allowing for movement and uniform expansion.||Edge is formed by using a one by. The one by is supported by these kickers, because on can't nail to the brick.|
|Window and door openings are formed by using one by fours||A snowfall the first week of March didn't stop us. Life continues under the tent with heaters.|
|Natural color finish coat is made from white portland cement, lime, and yellow masonry sand.||Flashing for top of wall is made using a metal brake for bending the flashing.|
|Just like 1828 again. Fascia board (rake) was replaced and here we
are putting on the flashing to make sure our wall lasts.
Next step is to take down the scaffold and move to another project.
We did this for an architect firm called Hartman-Cox architects.
