I know, in the case of a full wall up to the roof that's unavoidable, but in this situation it seems like common sense to have the stucco guy come in later.
I don't think I have ever worked on a new house around here that was not sided before the masons came in. I normally have my soffit on before they come too.
I have one coming up where they are thinking of having me put up the soffit before the Drivit get put on which really is backwards. But as long as I get paid and they don't damage anything I guess I could care less.

It's either around here, but "I could care less" seems to be preferred for caring less.

One builder I do work uses real field stone on his houses as accent in certain. The stone masons he use do an amazing job.

It may be "preferred", but you are literally saying that you COULD care less which means that you DO care. Personally I could't care less which way you say it.
