Trench redug for the Stone Wall footings
Piling up the Stone and Resetting the Lines
Getting the Lines Right
This part is so important as it sets up the rest of the wall.
Rock by Rock it's starting to look like a wall.
You can see where the driveway will fall under the Garage Wall
First Step in Place
The weather is breaking and the doldrums are too. Work is now picking up pace.
Because of our mason’s workload, he’s asked another mason to take over the work. This was difficult for us because the original wall was started last November until the cold of winter set in. Now we had to lay everything out again and explain what we wanted for hardscaping. Half of the problem was remembering what we wanted to begin with.
However, we’re in good hands with Henry Pereira from Pereira Brothers of Warren, RI. If you could picture this cigar chomping guy showing up with his crew going gang busters and finding out that Henry really knows his trade. He has helped re-plan the wall and walkway to really fit the slope of the land and help save us money. He’s also the kind of person you’d want as a neighbor. So any trepidation that we had of switching masons in mid-stream is long gone.
The wall is coming along fantastically and we couldn’t be more pleased with the work and how it looks. But I’m under the gun for time and need to make it to the electrical supply place now so the pics will have to tell the story today. I’ll add more later.
Enjoy your weekend.
