Re: Crazy Ass Masons


Looks really good to me, a bit like pine cones. Always like to see new ideas, too many people just stick to the standard stuff nowadays. That's what I like about the old stately homes when the owners had money to burn and the tradesmen who could do anything the mad upper classes could think of.

That's actually the well-known stegosaurawall technique; been around for eons. Nice to see one so well preserved.

where I do some work is the surounding philly suburbs. about 10-20 miles out. I havent seen this style at all in such great shape. I should have taken some close ups because I wasnt able to identify any patch work. alot of the estate walls are capped this way around here, but this a first for me. I'm guessing from the replies so far this is seen alot in pa?

Steve, I see that a lot around here as well. The sea wall in Plymouth harbor has that as a cap. I never liked the look myself. Itís one way to ensure no one will sit on the wall I guess?
