Show update - Feb 16 - 3 weeks to set up
I think that we are in pretty good shape in regards to the prefabrication of the project.
As of today we have all the American Clay applied to the planter boxes and walls.
I spend three full days last week cutting the wood frames, the 1.5 inch thick styrofoam , prime painting and assembling the perimeter planting boxes.
The guys came after all the boxes were assembled and applied the American Clay
I’m not so thrilled with the Colorado Red color of the American Clay
It has dried too light and “pinkish” G A S P ! No NOT PINK !
So I have to figure out a way to darken the color either by applying a wax or oil type finish or do another coat with more iron oxide pigment mixed into the clay.
But for this evening, the bulk of the pre-fabrication is almost done , with the exception of the cast concrete stepping stones.
All the pieces are now drying, curing and resting until the big move out.
