Yeah I got lucky and bought them in the spring when the local stone yard was having an open house.

First off, thank you stonecutter for recommending those gloves for me. I put on surgical gloves first (to keep my hands dry) then the ones you recommended and my hands are perfect. Thanks !!

Here's a pic of where I'm at. Hoping to finish it up by next weekend. Wow did I just say that !! 5 months start to finish. It's raining here today so after work I'll be doing my tile for my hearth landing.

Ok guys in a jam. Is finally nice out here in Maine and I got a full days work in on the oven enclosure. I got my decorative arch in and used UMACO to mortar my stones on. The problem is my wife lined up a small gathering in a few hours for a small pizza party. Is the heat from the oven going to damage the curing process of my mortar around my oven opening?

This is the mortar I'm worried about. All around the arch:

Try it and see, it doesnt look like too much to replace even if it does fall out.

Looks great! It is a great inspiration for me and your food has looked great too! Excited to view the final product. Can you take a picture of the oven placement in reference to your house so I can give it some dimension?

Thanks for the comments. The food tastes great too

Here's a photo for reference to the house. It's a few months old.

Ok, I have to grout my joints and do an acid wash on the stone and I'll be DONE !! Just a little bit of landscaping around my work area and it's Miller time. Next Saturday is our first Annual Pizza Party at the house. Can't wait. What a marathon !
