From yesterday, more brick:More stone:
The fireplace inside Houndstooth Studio:Houndstooth exterior (yes, Cindy, the cupola is up!):And I think it's time for a 'big-picture' shot again:It's coming along!
For today: meeting necessary with masons. They're getting a little too precise with the stone, and over-cutting to [to-them] nice, regular, shapes. With beautifully natural stone like that, who wants smooth edges that make it look machine-made?! So often the workers just really don't get it that we like the natural roughness of wood, stone, and hand-crafted brick. . . . They want to get it all smoothed off, polished and shellacked. sigh. . . .
