With the completion of the welding and attachment of the expanded lath in the porch area it is time for the next stages of construction. The ceiling sheeting on the porch is in place and the lath is started there. Tomorrow we apply the fiberglass reinforced concrete to the first of the trees and then do the sculpting. This first tree will set the style for everything that is to follow and there will be tons of concrete to come!
The ceiling panels are all fastened up into the carport area as well.
Today the first piece of trim was permanently fastened in place. The concrete will be sculpted right up to the edge of the routed high density urethane. By the time we are done it will be impossible to tell where one material leaves off and the other begins.
The trim features layered hearts as an insert. This same detail will go through all the exterior trim pieces around the house along with a few more surprises of course.
The icing on the cake is about to begin!
