This was an exciting day.  When it stopped looking like a skeleton and more like a real house.  

The Rock Facade

I was reminded that I haven't kept up with the changes around the house, so here is an update.

After we finished putting on the siding, we had always planned to put a rock facade underneath it.  However, it was the last thing on the list...until our insurance company sent us a letter last October.

We were told that we had 1 week to get the rock on the house or they were going to drop our policy due to inadequate exterior finish.  Well, that was bs, but there was no time to fight it.  

So Steve started putting rock on the walls.  It took all of half an hour to realize that Steve was not the man for the job.  He had neither the patience nor the technique for it.  After he walked away, I took up the trowel and plugged on.  What do ya know, I'm a natural!  Lucky me.  I got to spend the next 3 days solid facing our house with large, heavy rocks. yay.  

Well, at least it got finished.
