We wish we were as good as this guy...



So it's been nearly a month since our last post. Between our current project and sorting out some logistical issues in our real life there hasn't been much time for blogging. We're currently working on the restructuring of our back walk up stairs (the ones that resembled Niagara Falls whenever it rained). This has so farinvolved digging a 5'x8'x6' hole and pouring footings. We're now building the block wall, then it'll be on to the drain/floor and new stairs. While we knew mostly what to do for this project we grossly under estimated how physically hard it would be. Luckily we were able to call in some manual labor on short notice to help with some of the heftier parts. There will be a blog post with pictures/etc when we get some more time.

Thanks for sharing this video. What an artist! There is something totally mesmerizing about watching a pro at work. The efficiency and precision of every move and trowel stroke had me hooked. I am as fascinated by this as I am when I watch a baker kneed bread or a fisherman clean a salmon. Very cool. Maybe it's why DIYers take up the challenge.
Good luck with your next phase.
