Granite Fireplace


A fireplace I just finished up this past winter. Same stone has Bytor's but obviously different cut and style. The aim was refined rustic

Re: Granite Fireplace


I have to hope I have everything set up and planned out before 11am cause I'm only good on autopilot after that...until 6 when (if I stick around) I get a second wind and can usually go until dark...after 3 or 4 days of that though I start to feel it in the morning

Re: Granite Fireplace


I can make a pretty good days pay by 2 , then I stick around till 4 or so so my guy gets some hours, but I'm really debating just paying him 8, I usually work without lunch or break and go like an ape on fire till one. The idea of sitting around and eating a sandwich shooting the breeze with someone I'm already shooting the breeze with irks the crap outta me. I just feel the production after 2 is slower to the point where I should really be looking at more work anyhow. Not like the old days when 10 or 20 builders would just leave you a message at nite and say one will be ready every other day....
