Posted by Steven in Colorado Springs, CO on 6/30/2018

So now that I got the proper concrete backer board up and the wire mesh on, it was time to ferret out the rock I'd need to use for the area around the door.  Turned out that took a bit more work than I'd have expected (which of course didn't surprise me--everything up here takes longer).

I'd sorted out some of the "whole" rock (as opposed to the pieces they cut during construction) with the intent to use them first--even exclusively if possible.  I quickly realized I had FAR more whole rock than I'd thought, which really is a good problem to have I reckon.  I started sorting it out on the stoop of the porch but quickly realized I had far too much rock to fit on the stoop, so I ended up moving all of it up to the porch.  Between the rock that I'd salvaged from under the porch (anything the builders cut they ended up throwing under the porch, for some reason) and the rock that I still had inside the house from the fireplace work I did a while back I found out I had a lot of rock!   Good problem to have, definitely.

So between sorting out all of the rock and cleaning up some of the old concrete chunks mixed with them it basically took me all day, which was a bit annoying but I'd rather do it once and right than ad hoc.

Tomorrow I start putting up the rock!  I hope.....

Yet more rock!
