First coat of stucco applied. I'm using three coats of Sakrete Type-S Mortar/Stucco Mix. I figure a three coat system will give me two coats to practice with before the "nice" coat.

Stucco was applied directly to the well-moistened cement board. I considered using metal lath, but found enough opinions at Home Depot, Lowe's and the internet that recommended I could skip it. I did use fiber-tape on the corners and seams. So far-so good: after two days of curing, the stuff seems to be adhering well to the board.

After the finish coat, I will paint the stucco with custom tinted masonry/stucco paint from Lowe's or HD. I wanted to used colored stucco but it was going to be a hassle to get the exact color that the boss wants.

Ken, I don't know if you feel like this project is dragging on, but I'm sort of glad you're still working. I've been following your build since I started reading these forums a few months ago, and it's been a lot of fun to watch.

The darker color really makes a difference already. It's looking great. Will the stucco be off-white or something darker?

Thanks Ed,

No, I don't feel like it's dragging. I'm really enjoying all the different phases and skills that need to be learned. Stucco is kind of fun once you get the hang of it!

The dark color is pretty cool... But it won't be there for long. I'm using generic gray stucco/mortar from Lowe's. After the final coat cures for a few weeks, I'm going to paint it with a yellowish cream color to match the siding on our house.

The second coat of stucco is complete. I mortared in place some decorative tiles that we bought in New Mexico. The tiles will be flush with the 3rd coat of mortar.

Stucco work is complete! The 3 coat system worked very well. I was able to gain some rudimentary skill during the first two coats so my last coat looks acceptable. I finished it with a float moving in a light circular motion.





I embedded the tiles we bought in New Mexico in the third coat. Everyone seems to like those. On the back wall I did some stamping (close-ups on next post).

In a week or two, I'll paint the stucco. I think we've settled on a color.
