Good stuff.... really enjoyed looking through your thread. Sometimes I miss doing work in Edmond. Had to quit when gas prices rocketed but income didn't

Re: Oklahoma Style...


Thanks for posting the pictures. Like I said before, you do some good looking work.

I just wish that GC's would put hay/straw around a house once it's bricked. A large roll of hay here, cost $15. And one roll will go all the around a house.

In the first picture you posted yesterday, the wall to the right of the entrance, you did some killer custom work on the faux window panel, but when I look at it, the first thing I see is the bright orange mud splashed up 2 foot on the wall, and mud stained up on the stone column. And that will always be there.

Just wish the other people had more respect for the Mason's work.

That's why I just do it myself, even with the more costly, regular sized bails.

You know the price range of those houses? 600's, 700s?

artisanstone's thread had a fireplace that was kind of similar to this one we did about a month ago.





Had one of my masons lay it, I just cut them and told him where to put them

Re: Oklahoma Style...


I have been behind for more than three years, finally decided that I couldn't do them all so I let some houses go, now I find myself caught up with nothing to do....sigh.

Anyway here are a few of the houses we have done this year.

Having nothing to do can be great...so long as there's money in the bank.

I know the feeling though...I hate to turn down work, even when I know it will be a huge stretch to get it all done on schedule

Re: Oklahoma Style...


The houses you do are beautiful! When I was in OKC this summer, I found myself riding around Edmond looking for houses that you might've bricked...

Re: Oklahoma Style...


Yes indeed, looks like quality masonry work is alive and well in Oklahoma...more specifically Edmond

It's so nice seeing something other than siding, lick and stick and stucco!

I love those herringbone gables. Fantastic work I wish one day I would get to work on a house like that.

Re: Oklahoma Style...


Been awhile since I posted anything...somehow I had smashed the lens for the camera on my phone in my pocket.

10 posts and then 15,000 brick in my first attempt at a Flemish bond. So hard to get any kind of rhythm going laying like this...

There was a preexisting post at the side of the drive that I had to stay level with, unfortunately it was laid on a way wider bed joint than I would have liked. The original plan was to do the posts and one wall then the rest was going to be vinyl fencing. Owner liked the wall so much that he decided to brick between the posts a couple of months later.

Re: Oklahoma Style...


Finished this one last week, I am now officially unemployed. Oil prices have made houses like these to not sell. I went out today looking for work, something I hate doing with a passion...gotta find something quick.









This is one that I did a few years ago, was across the street from the last one in this post, was always one of my favorite houses.
