Default Stucco texture. What do you like?

Just getting ready to stucco the rest of my house.

The bottom was done more "aggressive" stucco. I was thinking the top smooth.

I need to decide on
Top Texture.
Color of bottom and top.



Anyone got a good color combo?




My vegas house color combo.

if your going to this lookig at the stile of your home i would recomend a antique white or a dark tan /almond for the top & a darker brown at the bottom & a bright white on the exterior trim to make the building pop & stand out
i would get a colored cement instead of paint

i dont know if u know mutch about stuco work bt i can tell u how to smoth it out & install the wire mesh i also recomend that when u are done the stuco job that u place 2 coats of thompsons water seal on it about 2 weeks after it dries the 60.00 cost is will worh your time to preserve the job for many years to come

Your right! I am using the dyed cement on the top half. Will check out the Thompsons water seal thing.

We are using the non-metal type netting on the top part. picture Below

Interesting..I'm not a huge stucco fan, but I like reading up on it. I actually liked your first pic with the more aggressive style, verses what I'm more used to seeing (smoother style).

For good reason. Stucco is not very compatible with our climate fish!! It breeds water problems and causes rot inside of the wall. Southern states are different as the houses are not as airtight and are allowed to breath. Up here in Minnesota and Michigan, we like to make our homes airtight and more energy efficient. We tend to install more air exchangers to move fresh air throughout our homes. The problem is, when you have an airtight home in a northern climate you get condensation inside of the walls where the cold air meets the warm air. I personally like the look of some stucco finishes, but would never put it on my house here.

STUMP

I don't like the look of stucco at all, and I'm not just saying that. It looks too much like you're trying to cover something up to me. (Not you in particular h4. I mean in general). I don't think I'll ever own a house with stucco, but times and tastes change.

Stucco is very common out here in Ca. Almost every house is stucco actually.

They sure are. I have an office in Pasadena and travel to the LA area often.

Where I grew up, there are no stucco houses. I think I'm just not used to seeing this style yet, even after a few years. Perhaps it will grow on me still. H4 looks like he's doing a fine job according to these pictures.

Awesome! What is your eBay user ID? If you have cards that nice, I'm probably interested in a few.

I used to be a power seller. I have since chosen not to waste money on the ridiculous fees eBay charges. I'm one of those "no-BS" guys. It's been my experience that when people avoid answering questions directly, they are full of it. That's not always the case, but almost always.

I am just a guy that laughs and moves on. I never have bad aura around me and am positive about life.

Just sold my share in the business i invested in after only one month and took the lose but was more concerned with SEVERING any ties with FAILURE.

Gotta spend money to make money.


Check out the reflection on my Vette... that is my other toy i just took out of storage.

Actually, I see you as a guy that laughs while bragging about himself and the things he wants us to perceive he has.

You definitely help to keep my smile going with each post you make. Thank you.

On a more serious note...Congrats on your perceived successes. I truly hope they are actually a reality. It's unfortunate you feel you must share them in a bragging way. I enjoy hearing about peoples' successes. Just in a different manner. Perhaps it's just me, and I need to change.

I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

Take care,

Matt

Its not bragging. a couple of people on this board are too skeptical about things. I actually feel the poorest i felt in many years(too much projects going on, investing and too much risk). I might get back into Cars and Cards and enjoy life more. Still trying to figure how to make Cards a business. But all the input from the various Forums make the card business sound like a bad idea.

Merry xmas to you also.

PS: i am NOT making $20,000 every four months in profit from selling cards. That is just the amount i am collecting selling off my collection(which i did spend alot of money on thru the years). If i could make $5000 a month PROFIT on cards that would be fun.
