Goodbye Stucco

Now that the brick footers are somewhat stable, the stucco/cinder block covering the crawl space could now be demolished in the visible areas. Not too much effort here and a surprise was that the driveway side was recessed some and just had to remove the stucco only. This will keep things pretty tight on this side and only have to insulate the other.

After some reconstruction for something to nail to, the new drip, belt moulding, and bead board could be installed. Everything but the bead board is composite so no worries of rot, and convincingly looks like wood. John did some more repair and pointing to the bricks once the other two faces were exposed after the demo work. These are now 100% redone.

.... and finally the lattice is finished
