Post Re: Starting new 36" build

FWIW-I met a stucco guy last night that is starting on mine this weekend. So if you do decide to hire it out, I am with you there. It isn't the skill so much, it is the TIME. I have grossly exceeded my time allotted for absence from the family life as i have been told. Also i am just ready for it to be done.

You are right. After building an oven, i think this would be manageable for sure. But the thought of writing a check and actually using all this stuff we have built is very enticing at this point instead of it dragging on through another spring and summer. Yes-i am lazy, too.

Tracy,
I can surely respect that . But, I don't think that anyone who has followed your build believes the lazy part .

Gulf - I take your point. I'm still thinking about it. I have the felt paper and bought the lath - so I am halfway there.

Tracy - interested to hear - how big of check are you writing?

Post Re: Starting new 36" build

not sure, materials around $150 and labor by the hour. He is doing a plaster looking finish w/ color and a molding at the top next to the ceiling. He thinks 30 hours @ $15hr. I will let you know the final tally. Seems like a lot of hours, but i think he was guessing high trying to CYA. I did the hourly instead of bid #, i think it usually works out better for both. But, if it takes him 30, it would take me longer for sure.

Smile Re: Starting new 36" build

He no hablo english to well and me espanol not too good either. Two arms though. I will watch and make sure he is using both of them. Maybe that is double the price for both arms. I think it is too many hours too. If he isn't about done in 10, we aren't on the same page.

Nice work Dennis - also Russell, Gulf and Tracy. I got back a few days ago and haven't got around to posting. Feels like the projects are all winding down together and the class of 2012 are about to graduate
Lately I have almost stopped any furthere developments. I still have to make proper insulated door and I have a stucco crack near the chimney which I have to figure how to fill, and some other tidying up but other issues seem to intrude more and more.

I recently told my family (as if they didn't know) that the Summer of the Pizza oven is turning into the Year of the Pizza oven. Sigh

Hi Dennis,

My man did it all in a day. He encased it in wire mesh lathe, applied the scratch coat, came back later and applied the brown coat, mixed the pigments and applied the finish coat, it was a work. Check out this video:How to apply a 3 coat Stucco system on the same day. Dash finish - YouTube
