There was an instruction class this afternoon on how to work with the cultured stone that will be placed on the exteriors of the building and dumpster enclosure. The instruction was given by Mike Bunderson of the Southwest Interfaith Council. The dumpster enclosure was used to practice placing the stones.
Photo I - shows the class gathered around Mr. Bunderson (holding stone)
Photo Q - shows several stones that were placed on a top corner of the dumpster enclosure by the class.
Photo R - shows Mr. Bunderson and several others discussing possibilities for placing stones on the slanted surfaces of the entryway columns. The columns present some unusual challenges for this type of application.

Other photos show placing the stone, studying possible pattern layouts, and holding the stone fast to the wall until it sets up enough to stay fixed in place.

(Note: There are more photos of the stone class on the web page for September 4th than were sent with the original e-mail report).
