Well, after opening the tile saw that Sandra spent four hours getting yesterday, I got it assembled pretty quickly and we started the adventure of laying up the veneer. It's really much like setting wall tile, which is something we have MUCH experience at. One item to remember is outside corners are started first and work your way from there. Well we don't have any outside corner pieces at the site yet so we chose sections that didn't have any. While Sandra was setting, I decided to run a scratch coat over other areas to get ahead and simply cover as much foam as possible before it chalks further.

Before Sandra gets over tomorrow, I'll finish the garage door framing and then back to stone with her.

Fermin told me today that he'll work this Saturday after all. That's great news! I'll have him run the scratch. It would be great to knock much of that out.

First section. Trying to run along where she didn't have to get on a ladder or scaffold. Also running where it is not in a very visible place. Good idea - practice where it won't show.
Got as far on the corner as she could reach, (since the excavator STILL hasn't filled that hole) so she switched to an area between two garage doors.
