    Looks good. Anybody who does masonry or stucco, earns their keep.

    Jeremy...nice looking home. So...what do ya do with 50 year old stucco with a few cracks in it? My house is stucco. Old school. It needs a couple of repairs. What do ya do? Tear it down, and start from scratch?

    in the fields pulling tassles at 12 started working at a dairy queen week after i got my liscense and worked up to night manager, untill i switched jobs and delivered pizzas. turned 18 my uncle was president of the finishers and plasters local and got me on an apprenticeship in 94. got my journeymans card after 3 years and we have a 4 year apprentice program. i have a talent with picking up things. hence the taxidermy. and been a proud member of local #18 plasterers and cement masons local to this day.

    i cut trees do drywall work and paint on the side. and still finish concrete with my uncle on the side at times.

    you wont pass to many buildings in bloomington il with stucco /dryvit on them i didnt work on if built after 95. and many in champaign, peoria, springfield all the way to kankakee and ottawa illinois.

    bought my home in 1999 with $100.00 bills.

    not sure if you were poking fun boomer but if anyone thought i was a sponge.

    hell no!:wink::big_smile:

    LOL figured that would get you hackles up. In my younger years, I use to dry wall and tape a little, then I moved on to roofing. I enjoyed it, just couldnt make a living at it in Oklahoma.
