|We did the stucco here in 1993. The original building was
built in 1788, and stuccoed about 1820.
We made the cool house print by nailing
2 x 4's up, and removing them after the
mortar set up. There really was a house there at one time. Click for bigger view.
|Pretty. We scored lines to simulate blocks and the wall was painted by an artist.|
|Last remaining "islands" of the original
stucco show the marble paint. This area floods frequently, and the old lime and sand stucco doesn't hold up.
|We built a rack to be able to score the block "joints" quickly. In 100 degree temperatures, white cement sets way too fast. Click here or on the picture above for a bigger view.|
|We plastered this house, too, when
we were working in Harper's Ferry.
We took over the museum from a contractor who got kicked off the job. We plastered the inside, too. Most of the work they did had to be sledge hammered off the wall.
We had a great time working up here.

Pretty. We did this addition 2 years ago, (2002) and you may have seen it on my progress updates.I made a separate page to show it off.

I think these stucco floors are just
too cool. I would like to do more of them in the future. If you haven't seen my floor on my progress updates, please click here or on the picture.
