We’re moving along on the renovation at MisAdventures – a slow pace but a consistent one. Since I started this project in 2009 we are just getting the exterior prepared for the siding I hope to get up before winter.
The rainscreen wraps around the corner with weeps installed above the final grade level. The white spacer below the stone on the porch is to allow for movement during the freeze/thaw cycles of winter – it will be removed later.
This is a detail of the stainless steel casing bead next to the window. This terminates the metal lath and scratch coat next to a window or door. The installed foam backer rod is caulked – this keeps the junction between the veneer stone and window or door water tight.
I hired a mason to work on the weekends by the hour. I installed the rainscreens and flashings and cut all the stone- he put the stuff on the wall and it worked out great. Here the last piece of stone is going on the front.
Hang in there – we’ll get ‘er done eventually.
