Hi Carl. I'm really liking your latest progress. The Crafter/ Stockley facade looks great. Again you've achieved a nice result for the stucco. You say you took several hours to do the entrance. Would have taken me several days.
You do really nice work.
Looking at the original photo, it's interesting that it has a half gable.
Eagerly awaiting your next update.

Regards Rob

I've always liked those vintage style building fronts, with set-back door in the middle and display windows on each side. You are doing a fantastic job with yours. It may take up some valuable time. but worth the effort put into it!

Thank you all George, Bob, Pete, Greg, Frank, Jerry, Fred, Jeff, Mike, Jim, Rob and Louis!

Greg- More? sure.... in the next update...

Frank- Explain the stucco? Just joint compound with no finesse applied.

Mike- Stucco the windows? If I understand your question- the windows frames were made even with the coat of "stucco".
The Tichy windows are NOT "masonry" versions.

Louis, What I really like about these complex looking fronts- is they take a lot of time, but very little money!
