I'm so glad that I read The Owner-Builder Book before I started all this - every single thing I've experienced I've expected ahead of time - I read it in the book.

Posted by Steven in Colorado Springs, CO on 10/13/2018

Good weekend days are getting rather more rare these days as winter is coming on, but I was finally able to grout the rock around the wall!  Yay!

A step back for a moment about Tanglewood.  The house itself has a "dry stack" layout, such that there isn't any grout to speak of between the layers of stone....they are tightly positioned one against the other.  When I started with the door I actually wasn't sure I'd have enough rock to do the same around the door (despite the larger-than-expected amount I had managed to collect). So I went with the more classic "wide grout" layout and honestly I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

I've got nearly the whole door area done as of this writing; it actually is going pretty quickly.  There's a little bit yet to do and then I need to extend the grout down to the pillars themselves, but I should be able to get that done tomorrow.

One step at a time!

The left hand side of the door, nice and grouted tightly.
The right hand side of the door. I think this dark gray looks pretty nice myself.
The upper right, showing the work and the bit of stucco that I need (eventually) to fix.
Another shot of the left hand part of the door.
