Am I on the same page with ya'll ?
As far as sloping the landing, yes you are. Water is the enemy of all construction. I always set a slight pitch on mine or grind one in like I'm doing with the current build. Unless they are completely out of the weather and under cover, it provides good insurance that water won't run into the vent area.

But a landing wouldn't really be considered watertable because it doesn't wrap the structure..though it does some of the same things.

Thank's Stonecutter,
My antique building experience always included a step down from the finished floor to the exterior levels (porches etc.) Also, just to explain the differences in local terminology, the "prow gable" that you referred to on another thread was commonly called a "boat bow" down here .

Brickie,
As for as the "echo" is concerned, I've lived with a blonde for nearly forty years. Forgive me, if that one went over my head . Some of it may have rubbed off .

Gulf,

The echo comment was because of a double post

Boat bow huh? I always thought that term referred to more of the ridge line shape, not to an extended gable. Local terms have always interested me, you see it a lot with masonry and with how loose aggregate is described from place to place.

I got a little time this afternoon to get a slurry coat on the landing and ledges. I didn't get any pics. They don't look that much different anyway.

On the way back from from a Mothers Day family gathering, I stopped by a local sawmill to pick up some tomato stakes. They are 1" X 1" spacers used to separate the hardwood lumber while drying in the kiln.

All of this is outside of the gate free for the taking.




All oak, mostly red oak.

I feel for those who live in areas where hardwood is hard to come by. I am truly blessed .

That is quite a resource stream. No chainsaw involved. How much time would that free up for worthwhile pursuits?

Cheers ............ Steve

You got to be kidding!?! How far is that sawmill from New Orleans? I would open a WFO bakery within one mile from that place. I just spent about $265 for a full cord of red oak!

If you feel lost with building your WFO, just pray to St. Stephen who is the patron saint of bricklayers.
