The Cornerstone

I've finished repointing the foundation of our house. This is an example of how badly it needed to be done, I've removed the rock that the corner of the house rests on. I replaced it after taking the photo.

Rigorous Mortar

Here's a shot of how nice the stones look with mortar between them. We speculate that the stones for our foundation came from a quarry behind the house across the street.


This gives an idea of what most of the digging was like. At least I got lots of good rocks for building some stone walls in the garden.
