Thanks guys. Joungdude,Home was built in 1885 and is on historic registry. Expert, Both front sidewalk and back patio were done in winter months while work was slow. It took about 3 weeks for patio and a month for front sidewalk. I lucked out on front walk, all the brick was FREE for the hauling (4 dump truck loads). I have about $360.00 invested in front walk,retaining wall. Back patio was much more $$ becouse I didnt find free brick when I did that one (first project).
TLC9, porcelin cat was already black and it has a twin (they are my wifes cats) they love to lay on warm brick and they try to ambush birds when they come to drink. They are too slow to get birds because we feed them and they are fat, but its fun watching them

You have your home looking TIGHT!!! I like what you have done with it. The stones look as though they were there as long as the house has been. Nice touch. I'm guessing that the bricks came from an old building that was run down. Usually those bricks are cleaned up and then resold for a whole lot more than what you'd pay for new bricks. You did well on this project. Good job!!
Did you redo the house too or was it already fixed up when you got it? When did you buy the house BTW?

Doster's, Bought home about 5 years ago. Been kept up pritty well. Weve redone one bathroom and the kitchen and some minor stuff (wall paper, paint) to some of the rest of the house. Home sits on almost an acre (in town) double lot and is commercially zoned out back. Thats where I keep all my equipment. Next year I hope to put up a pole barn or large seperate garage.

Looks nice! Any pics of the rest of the house. Did you restore it or what?

Seriously?! Did you have to bring a very pointless thread from 04 back?!!!
01-09-2009, 09:27 PM
I agree --- why bring this thread back from 5 years ago !!

looks good, just too many different types of stone and brick in my opinion

I'm glad this thread was brought up. I enjoyed looking at it, very nice work!

your work looks good but the white concrete home depot wall stone to cobble stone steps to brick paver patio looks terrible its just to much of a change, you want to keep the same type of stone, in most cases simple/matching is better. Lawn freak - iv read alot of your posts i dont know what to say i mean you try hard but dude dont ever criticize or judge others work you have alot of learning to do as well as i do but iv been in the business before you were born and son you have a long way to go, keep workin hard.
