Thank you gunner.ive no I deer on who will be doing the kitchen.i was only there to do the shell but I've ended up helping the other trades.just finished the services and most of the drainage.as the weather has been real wet the last 2 days I've been celotexing the roof.now that is a s h i  t e job.absalutely hate that stuff.

I thought this might be a different topic for a change and I do like to show my mates and family the jobs I do.

Stonework is the hardest to do but looks the best being a natural product.

We're curious, Bambi. It looks to us as though different types of mortar were used for the rough stone and the smooth Ashlar blocks. Was that the case and, if so, why ?

Stonework and quoins were built with the same compo and raked out.the customer didn't want the compo on the quoins too bright so I used half white cement .half ordinary cement some lime and yellow building sand.i didn't like the colour myself.the stonework joints were done yellow gritsand the sand you lay brick paviors on.light building sand.lime and white cement.
