Neighbor renovations

One of our neighbors is having some work done on her house. The work so far has been to strip off the enduit (stucco coat) from the northeast gable end of the house and to repair the woodwork under the roof tiles on that end. Apparently, our neighbor has had moisture problems on that end of the house.

You can see what's left of the original enduit coat at the point of the roof.

It took the workers a few days to remove the stucco before they worked on the tile supports. Then they erected this scaffolding which, I presume, they'll use to apply the new coat of stucco.

We're keeping our eyes on the hurricane news coming out of the US. We have friends and family in Florida and are hoping they're doing what's necessary to to protect themselves. It looks like it's going to be a rough ride for a while.


  1. If it were me, I'd leave the stone exposed... unless that stucco is needed to keep the moisture out. A very labor intensive job though. I hate to think what it's costing. I guess just about every American knows someone in Florida. It's gonna be rough there for a long time.

  2. stuart, it think the stone is nice looking, but apparently it's not weather proof.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
