It is real brick but it already had about 20 layers of paint on it. We considered sandblasting it...but we had to add posts on each side for the new beams. So, to hide the posts, we covered everything in wonderboard and will refinish the entire thing. We were going to do an old-world brick but now we're leaning towards antiqued steel and re-claimed wood from my crates.

Yep, in North County. My commute will go from 1 hr each way to about 10-12 min each way.

Sorry, was confused. My parents live in North SD County. I now live in North OC, which people also refer to as north county. But I'm not far!

It's been too long since I updated this.  So we decided to try the countertops again...we went with a lot more rebar this time.

Concrete in the forms.  Still pretty wet.

Troweled and curing.  It came out really nice, the finish feels like soapstone.  It needs to cure for about 7 days before we mess with it.

Matching fireplace hearth.

More siding completed.   Don't mind the ugly pipes on the tankless water heater.  I've got a cover that matches the unit, so they'll be hidden.

Counters are dry, I need to fill and sand them before the sealer.

Close to the end with the siding.  We still need to pick a color, as its just primer right now.


Matilda helping.
