I prepped us a bit early this morning by bringing blocks down to the footers and filling up our mortar water.

We pulled our lines and checked our measurements…

Today’s work

I also played a bit with sanding the metal staircase. I worked for nearly 1 hour and hardly completed 5 inches of one railing. We’ll be exploring plan b.P1030951

Well, I said I wanted to keep up with the guys and I must have accomplished this. Our mason thought I was a nice young boy today. Carhartts, no makeup, goggles and a hat…what can I say.

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVERYONE!! We can’t wait to continue the adventure with you in 2014!!!

  1. How about leaving the railing raw and have a clear coat sprayed on after a light de-buring and scuff sand?
