stucco and brick

This very well may be one of the last photos you see here of un-sheetrocked walls! By our next site meeting this Thursday more than half of the house should have proper gwb partitions. This is just a quick shot from our last meeting showing the extra blocking at the elevator shaft wall.

As sheetrock goes up on the inside, a new brownstone color has been chosen for the outside. We've all agreed on the sample to the far right in the photo below. It's quite different from the existing color but is so warm and stately in person that it's sure to make the house sing.
We're also using this stucco color at the new top floor for the side elevations (which sit above the neighboring houses) and the back elevation that faces the garden. It will be next to the brick terrace wall shown below.

Another exciting piece of work is this amazing herringbone brick pattern at the parlor floor fireplace. The masons are so meticulous with their work.
